Ralph - 

I went with bare wire, and it has not been a problem.  I also upsided the
top wire to 1/4", and left the center 3/16".

There's been a serious discussion on another list about Am-Steel as well,
with some folks claiming to have years of off-shore use without a problem.
I've no personal knowledge.  There's a line of lifeline and gate fittings
made for rope:  <http://csjohnson.com/marinecatalog/00007.htm#bot>
