Default Stainless Steel Outdoor Rated Gauge?

Need some technical help here!!!!

We are building our outdoor kitchen and have purchased all the doors and access panels. My question is that I did not want to drop the $1000 for a nice prep sink. I have done some research and found a decent sink that was 16 gauge 304 series stainless steel and I am wondering if this will present any future problems if i go with that model.

Thanks in Advance. Pictures to follow!

None at all. 16ga is actually pretty thick for a sink. sheetmetal was my business for 35 yrs.

304 stainless will not rust. Anything in the 400 stainless family will.

I picked up a used stainless restaurant sink that i use outside. I've never had a problem other than just some dirt. give it a good rub of BKF and you should be good to go.
