Swim? In our neck of the woods, you get hypothermia in a few minutes even in the summer months! Safety is a huge deal as such. I must have redone half the systems in my boat to make them proper. Simple thing like a zip tie of a wire on the engine hose pipe becomes dangerous as it cuts like a knife into that hose. Imagine having the gas line or engine coolant cut in the middle of such waters. Not fun.
BTW, I found a related problem in my AI with the positive cable zip tied right next to the negative battery terminal with its sharp edge. With vibration it would create a nasty short as it would cut through the insulation. They could have zip tied it to positive line but chose to do it on the negative. Little common sense would go a long way there.
