Well if it outlasts the boat hull...who cares?
My 316 stainless so far doesn't show any corrosion. Some lower grade 304 stuff has a little rust. Still it will outlast the boat.
In the past I used some 6061 I had lying around and it wound up with holes in it
It was the wrong application for it though, and had direct contact with stainless.
The more I work with ABS. the more I like it. I built my mounts from HDPE, which is very close to working with wood. Plus I get the material for free.
