    Galvanised to stainless can cause cracking in the stainless when seawater is added.

    I have just wandered down to the mechanical engineers' lair where I work, and when they had all stopped cringeing, sharp intakes of breath, going yikes, ouch and jeepers, they all agreed that it's time to replace the lot, and do it regularly.
