Where Can I Find a Decent Deal on Stainless Tubing ?

I need a new shaft log for my boat. It's 2" stainless tubing, .095 wall thickness, 1 foot long. I cheked McMaster-Carr and $80.00 seems really steep. I called all the usual suspects locally but nobody has any pieces and they would need to order a 10' section. That isn't economically feasible.
Have any of you shopped around online and had a great experience?

I concur.

Online Metal Store | Small Quantity Metal Orders | Metal Cutting, Sales & Shipping | Buy Steel, Aluminum, Copper, Brass, Stainless | Metal Product Guides at

They show your piece as being $55. plus shipping.
