Fusing the wire or the object?

We have three lights and a cigarette lighter plug on a 16 gauge wire.
They are wired in a series.
There is one wire then a soderless connector which goes to the first light and a wire from it then goes to the next and so on.
We want to fuse them.

Two lights are LED.
One light is a incandescent.
Then the cig lighter plug for a low draw light we want to hang off the bow at anchor at times.
How do we fuse them?
Would we put one fuse for all?
One fuse for each?
If one fuse for each what size fuse or how to know what size?Thank you,
