Why isn't soldering recommended on a boat ?

I assume it is because of the motion of the boat, that the movement makes the wires eventually break at the boundary between the solder and the wire because the solder can't flex, is that it ?

The only other thing I can think of is that the salt might affect the solder in some way, but I doubt that is true since it is mostly lead.
