Oh no, I’m transforming my brain back to when I kept a boat in Southern Maryland, winter, oh, oh, oh.
At the marina we had one of this type panel at the end of each dock. I believe they were Westinghouse panels and they had slide breakers. A little red button under the knob on the breaker popped up when the breaker was tripped. One of the breakers broke one day, and we couldn't find a replacement anywhere as no one even made (or knew of) aftermarket breakers. These breakers were very hard to reset when they tripped, and probably due to their age broke fairly easily. We ended up replacing the panel.
There was nothing inherently wrong with the panel or wiring, but I would let the client know that due to it's age and type parts availability may cause the need for a panel replacement.
