One of the simpler ways is to use a battery post-mounted fuse, which Maine Sail has posted photos of recently. However, these do require that your battery box or space have enough height to accommodate them.



As an alternative, you can mount one of these on a buss bar with the cable going to the main battery switch, and have all the batteries connected to the buss bar instead, but the buss bar would have to be located very close to the batteries for that setup to be considered safe. IIRC, Btrayfors posted a photo of that very setup in another thread.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
