Anyone replaced teak rails with SS?

In another thread, painting teak trim is debated and I did not want to run it off in the ditch, so...
Leaving the cap rail out of the mix, because of the physical and financial challenges, has anyone replaced all teak railings with SS?

Ironically I am thinking of going the opposite direction. Go figure.

Most of the GB charter fleet here in Bellingham have replaced teak with stainless. I know where the old teak rail stash is!

I often thought if I got a GB and swapped out the teak for SS it would be wise to hang on to the teak for some future owner.

Replaced the teak railings on the foredeck of our Krogen 42 with stainless back in 1999. Has worked well for me. Just wish I could get rid of more of the teak.
