Question

I'm a first time boat builder and I need a 9" bolt to connect the skeg to the keel. I don't have a big budget so I'm wondering if I can use a bronze or brass acorn nut with a stainless steel threaded rod? The boat is a 12" dinghy that will be used in fresh water.

George, First, I want to warn you against assuming the boat will only be used in fresh water. You clearly care about what you are making so it will have a long and varied life and one can never tell where it may travel. The concern is bi-metal corrosion. In effect different metals set up a battery that causes metal to deteriorate as well as the surrounding wood although not so much in fresh water. My advice is to stick with one metal. If you have fastened the boat with bronze stick with it. The material costs will soon appear minimal compared with your labor. Additionally brass is nowhere near as strong as bronze. Good Luck and Best Wishes, Rob

Answer

Brass should be compatible with Stainless, but why not find a stainless nut as well?

Answer

Im not a boat guy. I am a machinist though. Very common in industry to use all thread rod and nuts to basically make a bolt the right length. Or if you have a threaded hole already ,use it with just one nut and use your threaded hole for the other side. And bronze and stainless go together like peas and carrots.

Is this rod 316 or 304 What type of stainless is the threaded rod?

Ray. I wish I could answer your question but unfortunately I can not. Grade is not of importance to us as the rod is encapsulated in epoxy during the manufacture of our products. I can tell you the quality seems good - but because of the pricing, I would guess it is the lower grade. Why not simply ask them to send you a sample - I did before we bought. Wish you well.... Gary
