So stainless it is, 316L sounds to be the bees knees for this application. Can I also purchase 316L hardware? What size hardware? What length should I make the chainplates? What size stainless stock do I use to make them out of? How far apart do I drill the mounting holes? Can I use aluminum for backing plates or should I use stainless for that too?

Mabey I need to go buy a book on rigging... I still cant figure out how much tension to adjust the shrouds to either. I'm not a racer, just a cruiser. Thank you so much for all your help. Any answers you can give are much appreciated!
