Be aware that many hardware stores only carry the cheaper, less rust resistant stainless steel, rather than marine grade 304/316 stainless steel nuts and bolts. An easy way to determine if the stuff is marine-grade stainless steel is to carry a magnet. Marine grade austenitic stainless steels are NON-MAGNETIC.

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.
