Re: Batt switch off, engine running, fire!

Amen. "fortunately" you just lost a depthsounder and possibly radio, but now you know the boat is wired incorrectly AND you could have lost the entire boat.

Personally, with that kind of wiring error I wouldn't trust an inch of the electrical system until I had checked it all out, with hands and eyes, and confirmed there are no other little tricks.
