Titanium causes less galvanic problems than its position on the galvanic series would suggest because the titanium oxide coating is less electrically conductive than ss.
There is ,however, no need for titanium in this application unpainted marine alumium wont corode as long as you isotate the disimalar metals. Duralac is simple and effective.
