Can anyone give me the name and or number of a company that can provide me with aluminum tubing / pipe suitable for beams?

Hello Eric,

I live in Europe so I can't give you directions to specific
companies in your area but, if standard round tubes are OK
for you I would start looking for metal trading companies or
even scrappers. My fore beam and my boom are standard 75 mm
diameter tubes - much cheaper than anything from a rigger.

Another alternative would be home made carbon tubes.

Not sure what kind of beams you are looking for but you can check with www.stilettocatamarans.com. Of course the Stiletto beams may be way overkill.
