Battery connect, make sure everything is switched of before connecting the earth cable last, always keep your head as far away from the battery as possible when buggering around with batteries, and don't bloody smoke near them either. Dis connecting them earth first, same safety rules apply.

I used to have a piece of equipment that measured extraneous currents in the water that plugged into my multi meter, when there was excessive corrosion on obms or inboard legs.
