The project in question is located on the Gulf coast, roughly 50 feet or so from the water. In addition to the main structure, we will be adding a boardwalk, gazebo, dune crossover and the like. Would galvanized fasteners or SS fasteners be better in this situation? What type of SS would we use? I know of 304 and 316 as being common structural fasteners. Cost is not a concern. Let's assume that we will be using bolts, nails and/or screws. The design has not been determined yet. I'm just trying to get a handle on fasteners before getting into the actual design.
