1. I don't know about question one.
2. I tried using stainless bolts but found they sometimes would seize
before tight. I believe you could use a antiseize compound and they will
work. Stainless is not as strong as regular bolts and galvanized are not
that strong either as they are grade 2 or cap screws. I used regular grade
5 zinc plated bolts and have had no trouble with them. They should last as
long as the tower and are cheaper. Stainless U bolts can be found at a
place like Construction Bolts as we have here in Monroe.
