According to Boat US, based on a study of insurance claims they handled, the number one reason for boats to sink is failure of underwater fittings and plumbing. So I would suggest that attending to your plumbing systems is at least as important as making sure that fuel and electrical systems aren't going to cause a fire or explosion...
