18-8/304/316/... SS fasteners?

I am told that one should use 316 Stainless Steel in a saltwater environment - that other 'grades' will not stand up to the environment. I also see that places like West Marine and my local fastener superstore both carry extensive 18-8 stocks of fasteners but very few (and expensive) 316 fasteners. Thoughts?
