Nix on the rock climbing harness, but keep the wire gate biners!
Standard climbing biners can't handle the salt and will quickly seize; I trashed quite a few retired climbing biners this way, mostly on utility/unimportant uses.
However, the wire gate biners do quite well, are as strong as the SS biners, are much cheaper, and are much less likely to put a hole in your gel-coat.
