2006 Mainship Upper Station - Switch or Circuit Breaker?

I am planning an install of an AIS, XM weather, Raymarine IP Cameras and a few other items. Reviewing the DC schematics, it shows the bridge switches as circuit breakers....(see pic)..this pretty much matches what i have...

I have three unused switches/breakers i was going to use in this install, but if they are actual breakers then that helps i guess.

All the items will be mounted under the bridge area.

See the pic.

They are switches with breakers built-in. If you go under the dash, you will see that they are actually breakers on the backside. No different than any other breaker. Technically all the AC panel are the same. Any breaker is really just a switch with a 'breaker' feature built-in.

It allows you to not need to put a fust on the portion of the circuit from the switch to the device.

Related question: Where can one get these breaker/switches? My search come up with ones that don't fit.
