My plan is possibly only replace the portion not where the sunroom is. Can I cut into the 2x8s at all to relevel the deck? If not, is the only option to butt another 2x8 up to the 2x8 already there and start releveling the deck that way?

Water is eight pounds per gallon more like 4000 pounds minimum.
