	If you cast in a coupling nut attached to a length of all-thread 
with a plate washer at the far end, that ought to be able to support
your withdrawl (I assume) load of 16 kips.  Stick a socket-head set screw 
in the end & it's flush & (mostly) water tight.  

	As far as corrosion resistance goes, not sure exactly how to 
solve that.  Stainless coupler, cap screw, & all-thread?  I'm mostly 
an academic so no practical experience w/ corrosion issues.
