Ahhhhh...don't take that comment to seriously as I can't point to any specifics right now....
Just typically in safety, especially in regulation....too many rules are written for the extreme possibility versus the average operation.
Look at it that way and apply accordingly. If I missed spoke and every ABYC rule is properly tempered, I appologize.
My quick stab would be our discussion about propane on a flybridge being vented below gunner level...way too complicated on my boat for what it's worth...and to what probability gained? Just food for thought
Even sight gauges have a wide variety of risks and solutions...wwhat solves what adequately for safety?
