Good (cheap) source for stainless pipe

I am preparing to mount a Rutland wind generator. I found part of what I need on eBay, the basic pipe that holds the gen, the base mount, and attachment points for supporting rods.

But I still need the supports, ie the pipe/rods that attach to the main pipe and angle out to attachments on the hull and deck. These pipes should be around 3/4 to 1" diameter and 6-8ft long. At West the prices are outrageous and not long enough. Most items can be found elsewhere, so does anyone have suggestions?

Locations in Annapolis/Baltimore especially appreciated.

Speedy list only 304/304L stainless tubing, no 316.
Will 304 hold up in a saltwater environment?
Prices look good.

Not sure how cheap $$ you're looking for, what about sailrite?

Also check with pipe distributors/steel suppliers in your area.

Re: Good (cheap) source for stainless pipe

304 is acceptable for marine, and it's actually stronger than 316.

Hmm, the prices look pretty reasonable when I went to West Marine site. http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs...splayErrorView
