ATO in Marine applications = BAD

ATC in Marine applications = GOOD

I would buy the Ancor brand.  ATO/ATC
1987 - 17' Sea Pacer - 2004 Evinrude 90 E-tec
15' Sea Sprinter - **SOLD**

ATO and ATC are different configurations...

One is open to the air, the other is closed. Both would corrode If the metal is not properly tinned/plated.

I have had good experience with Ancor products in the Marine environment

So using them interchangeably in the fuse panel is OK?  Is there any CG reg. that your aware of on the type of fuse used on a boat?

Ancor calls their fuses "ATO/ATC"   (Im assuming they are probably all closed.)
