I'd suggest getting one from a car (auto) store, the ranges are more likely to be useful on a boat. Flukes are great, I have two at home, but there is no way I'd take one on the boat.

They wanted over 100 to repair a TriData unit, saying they had to replace the entire circuit board; I eventually traced the fault to a 20p part!

Errr...

Yes it is - and yes it is.

Raymarine don't publish the service manuals outside their dealer network, so if anyone has got access to one I've got beer tokens at the ready.

Yeah, OK, and so is disconnecting the leads. But we are talking about a switch that has to go past "off" to "stop" every time you use it.

Yes, but it will turn off the field windings, so it won't do any harm. Imagine how silly it would be to have a switch that went through a position where it could damage your alternator.

What, more cruel than poison that causes internal bleeding? Or a spring trap that may just crush the snout?

To the OP, get an ultrasonic pest deterrent device.
