They'd routinely dissolve from all the spray and humidity. They'd have to use hydrostatic pressure plugs like inflatable life vests. That would cost money and require periodic replacements - just like the vests.

In other words $$$$$ - like everything else in this world it always comes down to $$$$$.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
