12 volts can not only shock you, it can kill you .... its the amperage that does the damage not the voltage. Your 12 volt starter probably draws about 400amps and your alternator could probaly push out 20 - 50 amps depending on what you have. It takes milliamps to cause paralysis. You have a short somewhere and this is one of those times you should hire a qualified marine electrician and not rely on "dock talkers"
