No salt water so not so worried about corrosion, but generally items
that generate sparks that are used on inboard boat engines need some
kind of ignition suppression (starter, alternator, distributor).  The
fuel tank, lines, pump, etc. all sit back there next to the engine in a
closed area that can collect vapors easily.  No worries here with a
mechanical pump but an electric one?
