Threaded lifting ring rod

do most of you change out your threaded lifting ring rods for age? Not at my boat but what material are those rods. Upgrade to stainless?

Top cross plank behind the back seat top (Port side). both engine stringers around the engine. Pull off the white piece of upholstery to the left of the gauge cluster and it will be on the back. CL -21- xxxx.

Re: Stainless Rub Rail

I do like the idea behind the Vix bit, the rail will be going into new wood and I hadn't given it much thought about perfect centering. Thanks everyone for all the ideas. I will go with #6 Stainless oval heads which is what I had planned.
