I've had breakers go bad. It's not that uncommon.
My boat is my ark. It's my mobile treehouse and my floating fishing cabin. It's my retreat and my respite. Everyday I thank God I have a boat! -Al FJB

But again, that is only what I would do, not what somebody should do.
I did this with a spare 15 amp breaker with jumper wire. After 30 min no tripping of breaker. Tried the first breaker again and it last a minute before tripping. Going to replace with new breaker and that should take care of the problem.
