I doubt that the element is the same as one Home Depot stocks, as the water heaters generally used in houses are larger than the one on your boat. Also, I do believe that the design of the heater element will have to be slightly different if it is designed for 12V versus 120v—especially given that it sounds like you have two heater elements in your water heater—you did say it works under AC, but not 12 VDC.

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.
