Re: Choosing the right metal
I'd use the most corrosion resistant bronze flat bar I could get. I prefer bronze to S/S underwater if I have the choice.
Frankly though, I don't think it much matters - I'm sure many boats have had fittings like that made from galvanized iron or steel.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
