Bless you... but anyone who is in a boat should wear a life jacket at all times even if they can swim. (even Michael Phelps)
Why? Why is this level of paranoia necessary? Do you really think that if Michael Phelps were out on a houseboat in the lake, that he would be at any real risk of drowning, assuming he's not drunk as a skunk?

It is not a level of paranoia. It is called being smart and safe. You can drown very easily no matter how well you swim in any body type of water.
I guess you have not been around areas that have many drownings every year or had to search for a drowned person in the water or pull one out that has been in the water for a few days or even few weeks.
