I picked up a basic aluminum Jon boat that I'd like to add a front and rear deck to. I'm pretty sure I'm going to build the deck from wood and fiberglass. How would I attach the decks to the boat?

However I decided to build the deck, if I attach it to the boat using stainless steel fasteners will I have trouble with corrosion?

Just wanna be sure. I was told that when you mix metals, saltwater tends to eat at em pretty good.

There is a compound called penatrox 5 A that will go a long way toward keeping down the corrosion from unlike metals. I don't know if it is available commercially. Lockheed used it on Navy planes years ago.

SS is considered inert as far as a metal is concerned and is the best when attaching dis-similar metals. There will still be some corrosion down the road and the products mentioned are wonderful.
