Re: Electrical kill switch

on a boat or a plane, redundancy is a good thing. There is no place to pull over and start walking if it goes all pear shaped.

I can see running individual kill switches and a 3-way switch. Been around power enough to see that a few hundred amps of power can melt things you never expected -especially- if you have a short and all those amps want to get there in a hurry
