One has to burn through the deck to make the specified 5/8" puddle weld.  A
special rod is manufactured specifically for this operation although a
medium (5/32") sized 6010 will do in a pinch.  The special purpose welding
rod is extremely fast freezing.  I don't know if the rod even has a AWS
"spec" designation.  The trick is to have the weld amperage turned up higher
than normal and "choke" the arc closely.

Been there and done that by the acres.
