Where can I buy the 50-ampere, 28-volt breaker? I think mine is shot.

A good source is E-T-A. They have world-wide distribution.

Many vendors make 50-ampere circuit breakers for 28-Vdc. If you want an exact replacement part, look carefully for the manufacturer identification on the device. Once you have determined the manufacturer you can look for a replacement part through distributors or retailers of that manufacturer.

That is a bargain. They're normally four or give times that price.

When I followed your hyperlink I saw a picture of a small boy playing with a sand bucket.

West Marine stocks circuit breakers. The picture you posted looks similar to the breaker I recently replaced in my Revenge which had a toggle on/off as apposed to the push button type.

I purchased an ETA 50 amp breaker from one of the suppliers listed on their site, Allied electronics ,cost 54.00 with shipping.
Not a bad price considering some suppliers wanted $75.00-125.00 and a few didn't want to sell to me because I'm not a company, isn't there a recession?
I went with the ETA because it was standard equipment with whaler and it lasted 19 years, why go cheap?
