Because of cabin shapes straight might not work in all cases. I agree stainless is a stronger zero maintenance way to go. But there should never be a leak into the core with a proper installation. If the holes are potted as shown in the link I posted there should be no problems in the future with leaks, whether wood or stainless is used.
