I needed the exact length of 33", so I had them cut it off. The left over piece was what was left of the 8 footer after they cut it. I didn't want them to cut it again and waste the perfectly good left over length. It still wouldn't fit.
I was in a hurry. My 20' x 10' sundeck was hanging in mid air with no corner support at all. Cantilevered from the house 10'.
It rotted right off....caught me by surprise one hour before sunset.
I just made it back and replaced it as the sun set. Days are sure short now.
