The galvanic isolator consists internally of two diodes which are connected in anti-parallel fashion. When they are connected in this way the diodes allow current in both directions but only above a certain threshold voltage. The voltage at which diodes conduct is about 1.4 Vdc.

The isolator is installed directly behind your boat\'s 230V connection. The forward voltage from the galvanic isolator is higher than the potential difference between metals. As a result this voltage will not allow conduction and as such the galvanic isolator will prevent any electrolytic current. However if there is a (higher) error voltage in the AC circuit the diodes will allow current through and the residual-current device will break the circuit.
