I recently counseled a client regarding non-marine (automotive) engine bolt-ons. I stated flatly that if there was a fire or explosion (almost always electrical in origin), an insurance company would not cover the damage. I was referring to automotive distributors, starters, alternators, carburetors and air filters. Am I correct in assuming that a fire claim would be denied for these safety infractions? If not, why not?

No insurance answer, but using automotive parts in a marine environment usually voids the guarantee policy on that item. Starters, etc. my neighbor replaces his at least every season, lots of annoying down time, especially on holiday weekends when he discovers it. We've seen some annoying product failures from no name box store parts like primer bulbs and gas lines that the lining detaches and plugs stuff up.
