The standard Yamaha filter mount is aluminum. For twice the price (about $100 vs $50) they offer a SS version (both come with a filter canister; no drainable bowl, just a solid canister, like an auto oil filter cartridge.)
The aluminum bracket got really ugly really quickly: Within a year, the paint had peeled, and the aluminum appeared to be completely encased in salt (it wasn't but the oxidation made it look that way), and that was with rinsing after every outing.
Found a guy who had the SS mounts for about $50, and haven't looked back.
For anyone interested, the Yamaha filter mount works with a Racor S3213 filter (which has the clear drainable bowl.)
