toe rail stanchion combo

Was reading post and have I36 acquired with new toe rails installed and has stanchions that appear to attach thereto- two blots to rail, two to deck- I still has old stanchions and two with gate support legs that all mount to deck. as to useof rail mount if go that way will place thin leather pad between dis-similar metals, alum & SS, to prevent corrosion. the issue of being further outboard on rail may be problem when close to dock/poles/other boats with yacht rolls ec. Thinking about a mix of old and new at want gates with additional support when life line pelican hooks off. Other thought was while the rail connection may be quite strong due to rail substantial connection- a stanchion hit hard may take portion of toe rail and deck too -obviously best not take any hit- either way deck may suffer damage. main concern is keep crew aboard. Best regards, Any comments or experience with this would be appreciated. thanks!
