An undamaged power cord pulled into the water while still attached to the boat is not a haazzard. It's insulated.

A power cord not plugged into the boat, but pulled into the water should not be a hazzard because anyone who can follow written instructions will have turned the breaker off at the pedestal before unplugging the cord from the boat. Failing that, dropping the energized cord into the water should trip the breaker on the pedestal.

The hazzard I see to swimming in a marina is the danger of being hit by a moving boat. Just like playing in the street except that boats don't have brakes.
