This picture shows the switches for the batteries.

I'm used to the 1 ,2, all, off switch.

Do these switches have two off positions in that you can turn them off either right or left?

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Yes, I have a switch like that on the starter circuit. It turn either way.

Beneteau switches are usually just on/off. Look behind them - if there are just 2 connections they are only on/off.

The normal arrangement is house on/off, start on/off, and negative on/off.

Correct, it doesn't matter which direction you turn them. Vertical is on and horizontal is off.
