during floor repairs a section of 1st ring shell is to be cut out to permit access for plate installation ,typically called a doorsheet , contractor wants to cut the shell plate 3" above the shell to bottom weld and re install this plate after floor is finished. looking @ API 653 under section 9 it seems the minimum dimension for horizontal welds to the bottom weld is 6" anyone agree
