When I was still boating I was always in a hurry to get away from

there could be a very nasty incident. A stuck mechanical bomb detonator
could be unstuck by the concussion of a powerful magnet.
How about pulling the drain plug? Probably not likely as the plug is
quite big and a winch would probably be required to overcome the water
