2" Aluminum tubes for building

I'm going to get my hands on some 2" square aluminum tube stock for building the Cruzer kit.  I was thinking that 4 of them each 5 feet in length would be enough.  Has anyone's experience been different?  I already have the Rudder built, so just thinking about the rest of the assemblies.  Any advice from the experienced is appreciated.  Thanks!David BackSee More
