Why shouldn’t I use S.S. Fasteners?

You can, above the water line. If you are in the process of refastening or adding fasteners to the hull below the water line, bronze fasteners, preferably silicon bronze fasteners are the way to go. Galvonic corrosion results from current between materials with different electric potential. If you use S.S. Fasteners along side of bronze fasteners, the S.S. will literally disintegrate. This may take a long time depending on the salinity of the water and spacing of the fasteners.
