Centerboard cable/rope?

I need to replace the cable on my P-35 and was thinking, dangerous, of using Samson Amsteel rope instaid of SS cable. My thinking is Amsteel is 5400Lb and SS is 3700Lb breaking strengh, so it should be strong enough, and if I replace it every few years, as it should be easier to replace and fairly cheap, chafe shouldn't be to bad, and no more meat hooks on the drum,
Any other issues I'm missing?
Board is strapped up for now.
