    "Sealed" is a relative term, not absolute, especially when it comes to the little rubber seals on 2RS bearings. I mend bicycles which sometimes use this type of industrial sealed bearing, they're not very good at keeping water out. The water ingress and rust does them in long before simple mechanical wear becomes an issue.

    Mechanical wear on steering pedestal bearings is likely to occur after about 1 million years. Going rusty, inside a steering pedestal would take much less time, probably only 30 or 40 years. Still, can't hurt to use stainless, some of these old boats could be around for a hundred years

    If pulling it out was the problem you can get internal bearing pullers the grip on the internal groove of the outer race, make removing very easy as the problem is often trying to pull out square.
