comment Swimming on Shabbos
@Curiouser--1. He says it is permitted when it is in an area it is permitted to carry and that even there it is forbidden to do so while wearing a bathing suit. 2. The minhag is NOT discussing "American" practice but Ashkenazi practice not to bathe, which is the authoritative Ashkenazi minhag.
