I probably should have just made the pieces from titanium and been done with it forever, but aluminum parts got done probably 10-20x quicker so it's worth a try like this.
On our aluminum boat - with aluminum chainplates - we used a delrin bushing between the pin for the standing rigging and chainplate. Pulled them off a few times and had no deformation of the plastic. But a GPO3 fiberglass bushing may be a better option.
