Has anyone ever had a hot bulb get wet? I have and they shatter before the element sparks/burns out. All it would take is one drop of condensation and some combustible bilge fumes.
Good references DeltaT. I never said the things people do are right, or safe, and your post reinforces that.

I personally saw an Islander 36 explode about 400 feet from me once. Not a pretty sight as the entire deck & coach house blew clear off the boat.
