Re: Proper way to tap into 12VDC wire?

If you really want overkill, how about one of these on each side of the boat, powered up by a breaker? Run a length of boat cable from the fuse box to each light. Each light will even have it's own fuse! You can't get safer than that.

I have one, powered up by the instruments breaker. Each instrument is then run off an individual fuse. Makes wiring tidy and easy.
