Just trying to get an idea of how long your brakes, disc or drum last in fresh or salt water.

My "stainless" disc brakes lasted about 2 years even though they were flushed religiously.

What wore out first? Do the disks run hotter?

They calipers started to stick and then eventually fell apart. I have not looked at them in a couple years but the rotors now look like something has been chewing on the outer edges. SS my Eye! at least not quality ss. I only drive 1 mile to the ramp so I don't care about brakes on the trailer.
