Glorious (galvanic) isolation

Inspired by the good folks on Hendrik we have bought a Galvanic Isolator which prevents galvanic corrosion due to the tiny electrical charge in the hull from the electrical systems on board. We haven't actually installed it yet, not wanting to die by touching the wrong wire, but it will soon be up and running and there'll be one less reason for me to lie awake at night imagining the hull just fizzing away like a giant soluble aspirin.
