About 3 feet would be under water (by that, I mean saltwater will be inside the tube at all time up to the waterline).
JSailer,

Have you considered some other material, other than a metal tube?

I have never had a swing keel so I am on shaky ground, but I might think about something like a reinforced exhaust hose?????? Just thinking outside the box.
