Prop shaft material

I have a 42' Tayana with a small perkins engine, a 4-108 (25-38 hp), a velvet drive transmission 2:1, and a Walter v drive. This set up spins a 1 1/4" shaft, 7' long, and I am thinking of hanging a Maxprop off the end of it. A PSS shaft seal will be fitted to the inverted stuffing box collar. What do you think would be an appropriate grade of stainless to make the drive shaft out of? The boat will live in the tropics.

Thanks Brian
