Graham, I see from your profile your an "AA" man, well I can only assume that you don't get called out to many electrical problems!
Why do you think that there will be less of an arc if you switch the neg, do you think that all the volts are "tired" after they've spun the bilge pump.
Surely the purpose of a Forum is to ask, and then receive sound advice.
