Just hate to see you burn up some gear or worse the boat, when the PS fails to shut off...even if you flip the switch...

One of the jump boxes or a small PV system would be a safer bet for what you want to do..

Not to mention if something does happen, and your insurance company finds out you left an unregulated PS on, overloaded..

Your boat, your life, you just asked why you shouldn't use it.....My opinion only...quantity trumps quality these days any way..
