I'm saying, if by some accident, the light fixture circuit grounds through another circuit, say someone is screwing something into the bulkhead and the screw pierces the wiring... the breaker wouldn't be on the positive line..so you'd have an unlimited current—at least until the wire heated up and burned the boat to the ground.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
