Stainless toe rail??

I have an O'day 39 that has three major dings on the toe rail (read: smashed) I straightened and faired with an aluminum filled bondo like product. I'm on the great lakes so it's holding up but it will not once I hit salt water. I can have three sections machined, blasted and anodized. I'll get a price once I remove the sections but I expect big $$$.
I have access to a Stainless steel fabrication shop. The owner is a top notch tig welder. We could fabricate all the sections fairly easily. I think a pollished SS toe rail would look good on my boat but I have no idea as to the practicality of such a thing. It sure would stiffen the boat up a ton. I can insulate it easily from any aluminum.

Any comments, suggestions, rants, raves??? I will not taker this on until next year.
