Thread: Electrocutions while Swimming

  1. #1

    Electrocutions while Swimming

    Something to consider when considering swimming near piers and moored boats. It is never a good idea to swim in a marina.

    One would think that the amount of electrolysis going on near and in the marina it would have quickly been discovered.

    You should see (well..you probably have) the damage caused to boats by stray voltage . Some marinas are bad...but so are some boats. Shipyards can be even worse because they typically have a ton of power service along their quay walls.

    It's something I pay close attention to since my 31 is an aluminum hulled boat. A few hours in the wrong electrical field and I've got holes in the hull.

    Okay. I just can't enlarge it to see what is in the pool.

    A multiport 110 ac strip floating between two flip-flops powering what looks like a radio on a table in the pool..
    It's hard for me to see also.
