It's locked in there, so I don't know if rust was an issue. Didn't seem to effect my oar clip stuff much in 25+years and those are made with muffler tubing too. Muffler tubing must be somewhat tough or it wouldn't be used for mufflers.

I have a large tandem IK/almost canoe that I was brainstorming on making a rowing frame and lean bar for fishing easy rivers and lakes. I was thinking old school wood since I don't have the stuff for welding up a frame and didn't want to drop the money on having a custom one welded up that may not work.. Thanks for the ideas!

This is interesting, but I did a bit of searching and 2" schedule 80 pvc is actually heavier than 1.25" (nominal) schedule 40 aluminum... 0.984 pounds per foot vs. 0.786 pounds per foot.

Product Specifications: PVC Pipe Schedule 80—Harvel Plastics, Inc.

NRS Unbendable Pipe 1-5/8" Anodized at

Is pvc in that size very cheap and easy to find or something, because otherwise I can't see the reasoning behind making a heavier frame out of plastic for such a use?
