I bow to the expert’s opinions and suggestions.

Whilst aware that ‘sealed in’ S/S fittings rust alarmingly quickly given the wrong conditions, I have used S/S extensivley on all three Atalanta family boats.  T4 is no longer with us, but not because of S/S failures; A31/4 seems to be fine and A1 likewise.  Maybe I’ve just been lucky, but for me, using S/S is well worth the marginal risk.
