Even on boats, there's little reason not to install a $10 anti-scald valve directly on the plumbing. Sink, showerhead, whatever. (I'd say the extra weight slows you down if you're racing, but racers don't need hot water systems anyway, right?)
The racer wouldn't even have a hot water heater on-board... Yes, anti-scald devices are a good thing... wasn't my boat, wasn't going to be my problem, until someone wasn't paying attention...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
