The cable for connecting the two battery banks together, and for feeding the engine (AWG 4) is much too small. Even for short runs, it would be better to use much heavier cable.

The "radio" position on the bus (not the VHF position)....is that for a SSB???

If so, it should be wired directly to the battery...with appropriate fuses on both the positive and negative sides.
