Why not just go and buy silicon bronze? 513B alloy is a good marine silicon bronze alloy. A 421 manganese bronze is another good alloy for marine.

Lots of places will ship silicon bronze and it's about 1/3 price per lb. than welding rod. Very few scrap yards know what they're doing when it comes to sorting scrap so you need to be careful when buying scrap metal for melting.

Nothing pours better than good certified silicon bronze. If you try to make it from scratch, you'll get lots of dross and ruin a crucible. I've done it.
