Re: DIAMONDS, your diamond, may not be forever

Another big danger when working on a boat, or a car for that matter, is a metal watch band. Imagine if it got shorted across two battery cables, say at the starter or at the 1-2-both-off switch. It'll get red hot in a second and the injury doesn't bear thinking about. I won't even own, let alone wear, a metal-banded watch with all the car and boat maintenance that I do.
