battery twist switch accident

This weekend we were motoring entering a marina in a narrow dragged channel when all instruments went dark. The entire panel was dark in fact. It took us 5 tense min of circling around to figure out a guest had knocked the house battery switch to the off position.

Problem averted, but now I am thinking, what would have happened if they had knocked the engine battery cutoff switch instead? Why are these things not out of the way, short runs for thick wires?
