I would recommend that you get 316 stainless chainplates rather than 304 stainless...because 304 stainless has known issues with chloride stress cracking in saltwater environments IIRC. 316, although not quite as strong, will generally last longer, due to the higher corrosion resistance IIRC.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
