Be wary of that stuff they call stainless.

If you hide it, or shield it, and get salt water in there, and it gets oxygen depleted, be ready for surprises, all of them unpleasant.

It adores topsides with all that oxygen-laden seawater splash where the chlorine cannot get a bite at it, but a keel bolt is very often not so blessed.

Dry, certainly, but not salt-water wet, with salt water leaking into the threads, and stagnating.
