Electrolysis

Am in the process of designing a system to mount solar panels to davits.

Davits are stainless. The frame I was making for the solar panels I had thought to make of stainless as well. I am having a tough time finding stainless experts.

There are lots of people who can do aluminum, but I was worried about attaching aluminum to the stainless for worry of corrosion due to electrolysis. Is this something I should worry about. I would be attaching part of the mount to the bolts through the pulley block on each davit, and then mounting a 'riser' from the panel to a bracket already on the davit at the end where the davit is attached to the stern of the boat. If I can't use that, then I would consider attaching to a stanchion. would using an aluminum frame be ok?
