Re: Wire my Garage like a Boat?

DC is not necessarily safer then AC. It's one of the reasons Edison's AC push won over Tesla's DC push for power back in it's infancy. Sure if you are just using low voltage wiring and lights it is safe. But as soon as you put an inverter on it amp up the voltage it is not. You now have enough voltage to push the electricity through you. And it is ungrounded.
