Electrical Dangers at Marinas and Docks
What lies beneath the surface at more marinas and docks than electrical inspectors can cite or industry experts want to admit is the potential for stray voltage flowing through water that stems from improper electrical installations — a silent killer that only waits to add the names of more victims to its list of casualties. This article examines the wiring and equipment requirements in marinas and boatyards currently outlined in the NEC. In addition, it discusses the new laws that have been passed in the last year by West Virginia and Tennessee to try and minimize these tragedies. And finally, it wraps up with a technical discussion that asks the question, how can we as a professional community help eliminate electric shock drowning and electrocution tragedies and better protect the public?
