One more question. Do you think this approach requires a 4 inch pole over 3in?

Still happy with it.
I wish I could claim some clever technical reason why I didn't run the
bury tube all the way to the deck, but the truth is that the piece was
available and it was cheap.
You certainly could run the tube to the deck, but it might be a bit
harder to work on because you couldn't get at the pole from below. I
don't think there's any difference in strength as the main stress
point is at the deck itself. Making the fit snug is more important.
Keep us posted on your progress!!
