although this is sort of without the direct insults. but still with intentions of being so.

:-) Yes the second link with the poster steelyourmom is another indication :-)
I guess I need to be able to ignore such people more easily. It just buggs me that such people seem to mess up a site.

304 stainless 16 gauge will do fine.

Keep in mind galvanized tube is not galvanized on the inside so of water can get inside the tube, when it floods you have unpainted steel getting wet and staying wet. Also you would have to paint the welded joint with paint or cold galvanizing paint to protect it.

I would opt with stainless.

I just for kicks looked at the thread yesterday and couldn't believe so many of you went on for 5 more pages of posts after I said goodby. Some people are hard to convince I guess. :-)
