Glad to hear it worked out. With all respect to you and your gaffer I still do have to say that having worked as a lighting technician for 20 years on Canada's "wet" coast, you should have used a gfi (aka gfci). For future reference you can buy a plug and play 15 amp gfi at any decent hardware store. Light stands, c stands in particular can fail or get knocked over. Just saying this for future reference for you or others.

It may be interest to understand how a gfi works. It measures the difference in amperage between the hot and neutral of a circuit which should be the same. Any difference indicates some current is grounding off which in a wet environment could be through the water. The gfi has a threshold of .025 amps which is the minimum needed for electrocution.
