I blew my pertronix electronic module.
My 26 year-old Pertronix ignition module gave up late this past season. It was preceded by erratic idling, poor starting, a surge while driving 25 mph, and generally frustrating performance. When it finally quit it happened while I was idling along in gear. It turns out that a new coil I had purchased mid-summer was bad at that same time. The mechanic told me that "sometimes a bad coil will damage the module, and sometimes a bad module will damage the coil". I have a hard time trying to understand that. At any rate, they were both bad, both were replaced, and now the boat runs great.

I don't know how water dripping on your 50 amp circuit breaker would have any effect on the module. I don't think you need a resistor with an electronic ignition.
