Building a Bimini

Hi All
I'm considering building a Bimini for our club boat. As I'm in Ireland and the boat is in Spain I'am looking to start on the project before heading down in late February ot do some work. There is no problem getting the fittings shipped to Ireland, but the tubes are a different story. I'm looking for information on the spec of the stainless steel tubes required and where best to get them. As with most of my purchases of gear and parts, I try to avoid the various Marine Stores to avoid the mark up, when buying marine parts. I'm hoping that this will be the case with the tubes.
Regards Joe McDonnnell
