It's cheap insurance.

Full disclosure... Unfortunately, even with all of my advocation of this, my switches are actually in the engine room and are NOT that accessible in an emergency. I do hope to change this eventually.

I put these Blue Sea remote battery switches inches away from the house and starter banks.

This was taken before they were fully hooked up.

The remotes are on the main panel near the helm where I start the engines (vs the flybridge). They're the red switches near the upper right.

Hope I never have to use them, but I can shut down the starter circuits instantly if I hear a runaway.
