Thanks for the elucidation Gary between pipe and tubing, seems important to know before i bend and tweak the rail. I was trying to figure out how to get at a pipe bender as i am out of town M-F. The aft stantions just need to be spread out about 3 inches or so wider per side. I think just a subtle tweak at a few places along the rails running aft may get it to line up a little better with the bow.

I am not sure if they have a bender in Home Depot or not but figure I could sneak a few tweaks on the pulpit in HD this weekend, if not I'll try the cars and chains idea. Not really.
