I would have expected the stainless steel fittings to be stronger than any of the options discussed. Surely just wrapping the threads with a couple of turns of Teflon tape gets rid of the electrical contact, dissimilar metals issue?

Tape might, but often does not keep continuity from happening.

People said they tried it with their pencil zincs to stop leaks but still got 0 ohms.

If the combo is tied to the bonding system, much like your bronze prop and stainless shaft, it shouldnt matter.

It takes luck and a lot of tape to prevent electrical current from passing through a thread fitting, especially one with tapered threads.

I had some luck recently with these folks making items I couldn't find elsewhere.

I've run into this before. While you may not find a hose barb, you should be able to find a reducer which will allow you to go up to say 1/2 and just go with the next size hose up. At least I think so. Basic fittings are easier than the barbs. No idea why.
