Electrical terminals for sailboat

Hi,

I wanted to consolidate my wires that go to my battery and mount something like this:

Anyone done this? Do you know where to get terminal blocks like this? I searched WM and Defender but didn't find anything. Does it have to be "marine" or can it be home owner type? Thanks in advance.

Defender has 5 pages of 'em

I'd go with marine. Seen too much rust on my boat.

Silvery metal may be aluminum. OK on fresh water, not good in salt air. Inland on the Hudson it probably won't make a difference for you.

You're looking for a 'busbar' or 'buss bar'.

See Blocks/Busbars for Defender's selection
