I hear you, the way I found out about this BUMAX stuff was from the guys on the Volvo racing team in the Volvo Ocean Race. Wow i sound like a volvo sales man. Joking aside the PM for the boat told me the switched everything to BUMAX 109 316L and reduced the size of many of their fasteners by almsot half. Ok now I sound like a BUMAX sales guy. Hope my small expereiance helps. Best way to stop salt water eating at everything is switch to fresh water sailing lol.
