I used to buy 316L Stainless & Aluminum from the IMS “scrap” bin, at very good prices. Perhaps a little far south for you, but try:

Just remember stainless comes in many different alloys (like flavors) and some are not suitable for the ocean environment. Finding 316 is rare and getting rarer and there are even a few flavors of 316 - some better some worse at corrosion resistance.

Look here for Brass and Stainless Steel tubing and fittings at a pretty good price compared to Marine suppliers. MARKSTAAR - Tubing, Rails and Fittings - Category Details
