    So you guys are saying that in addition to being ferrous, steel boats can be ferocious?

    Well gentlemen it wasn't about "ignition protected" for me as much as insurance protected. If you are upgrading your breaker panel and don't use marine grade will your insurance cover your boat and all the other damage it causes. Why give them a reason to deny a claim over 100-300 difference in cost?

    Call your Insurance and ask. My boat went through 2 SAMS certified surveys and a inspection by a Ins co. rep when I made a claim and absolutely nothing was said about any thing electrical.

    Boatlover is right. It all depends on the insurance company and the surveyor. Check with them. Some surveyors go strictly by the ABYC standards. Some don't.
