Keel bolts & Mild Steel Washers

Since the list has had no activity in quite a while, I thought I'd start a new thread. For those of you S2 owners who have boats with keel bolts, how many of you now have rusty mild steel washers on your keel bolts? Anyone have an inkling why S2 used mild steel washers instead of stainless washers? The gentleman who surveyed my boat indicated that I should swap the mild steel washers for stainless. Wadda y'all think? Good idea, or...?
