No. Mine is inside the galley cabinet which makes it slightly above the static waterline. It's easier to work in there as opposed to lower. If it helps I can provide a picture on Saturday.

Agree that it does not matter above/below the waterline from a functionality perspective, but perhaps with an eye to safety, would it not be better to minimize connections below the waterline?

Well, yeah but I think more important is the integrity of the installation whether above or below the waterline. Proper materials, good design and consideration of all factors make for a safe boat.
