Re: Windlass/Genoa Furler electrical problem, circuit breaker bad?

That entire board is removable. Look for the single black thumbscrew inside the door where the breaker is located. I have known this breaker to fail, but it is unusual.
BTW, when you have the board loose, there is plenty of wire to pull that board out so that you can operate on it.

Hey Amelians! So I'm stuck here in total lockdown in Greece (really can't complain, it's amazing), so it's not a tragedy, but the circuit breaker on the windlass/genoa circuit of our SM is tripped at some point this winter (in the last few weeks sometime) and won't stay in the up/on position. Being in lockdown, getting parts is almost impossible, but I do have a spare 100A circuit breaker that would fit. Since the space to install is very limited (I can't even put a multimeter probe on the top of the breaker without pulling things out), I was hoping I could get confirmation from y'all that the circuit breaker is the most likely culprit....
