Thanks for the comments. The size of the boat is not directly related to the stress on a stanchion. More important is my large friend pulling himself up with it (or falling on it). Most of the literature on this ( Don Casey, and my boy Nigel ) recommends stainless, so I can't imagine that it "makes less than no sense at all". I have used epoxied plywood for similar purposes with good results. How does white oak and IPE hold up in the marine environment? I seem to recall some issues with finishing IPE?
I like the aluminum idea, no problem with stainless bolt in an aluminum plate?
Thanks again
