The kill switch cuts the power to the three way switch which cuts power to the whole boat. I'm thinking it's not needed as the three way switch selects from the two banks.

On my future design for the power system I had thought about putting in an independent three way switch just for the diesel which would be separate from the main power panel. That way I can cut power to the starter without shutting down the whole boat.
