Thanks Dev. Any recommendations on how to determine whether or not my switch is Make before break? My boat is a 1991 and I believe the switch is original.

I was able to get the pic into "my images" but couldn't figure out how to post it onto this? It's a perko with 1, 2, All and Off positions.

Here is the link to Perko site

http://www.perko.com/catalog/category/battery_switches-selector_switches/

Most of thier switches are make before break...you should be able to find yours and read the data.

Looks like it's a "make before break" model. Sounds like it OK to move between 1, 2 and Both while running, but never OK to switch it to Off while running.
Thanks Dev.
