What? I don't understand. From the picture linked, you have a positive in and a ground in, on each side of the plate. There are 6 positive outs, that are linked to the positive lug (Positive in), but only allow voltage through, when you have a fuse.

The Ground or negative in lug, (far left) is connected to the 6 negative outs pan screws.

How can you say that you have separate ground and negative terminals? That is basically a solid plate, with 7 threaded holes in it, one bigger, for the negative in, and 6 smaller for the pan heads to attach individual items to ground or negative.

In DC Voltage, you have a positive, and a ground. Ground = negative, terms are pretty much interchangeable.

You said the negative/ground should have its own bar, not connected to fuseblock. Now I never said the negative and ground were different bars, simply stated that my fuseblock has a "ground/negative" bar built in. Whichever you want to call it is fine but I can take either negative or ground off the statement if it helps. Just making sure the OP knew there was fuseblock a out there that had both sides built in instead of just positive fused circuits that would require an added bar for grounds (oops, negatives)

I do apologize for the part in confusion but OP got what I meant as I have discussed it with him

Just to lighten the mood a little, here are some pics with 'separate' neg bus bars and fuse blocks with without the neg bus.

Sorry again if I came off wrong or as a smarta$$. I say negative/ground because like he said they are interchangeable. I do commercial refrigeration for a living so I know it's not a neutral vs bond argument. In my work environment green is ground/bond, black is power and neutral is white, then I jump over and do carts where green, red and blue are all positives while the black is negative. So I get my words mixed sometimes. Sorry

No worries. Yeah, I kind of misread what you were saying. You are correct, you can have a Ground/negative bus bar that is part of a fuse block. I was trying to help the OP, as clearly he has been confused a few times in this thread. I figured telling him to separate the fuse and ground bars, was the simplest way to explain to him, (as shown in 270 Handiman's Post). there is definitely more than 1 way to skin a cat, but everyone agrees that there should not be a Green and black wire in OP diagram.

270 Handiman, what kind of boat you got? Did you wire that one yourself? Nice looking wiring job. I wired up my 27 Angler, took me about 16-20 hours, to strip out old wires, fish in new ones, crimp connectors, and heat shrink ends. There is a lot of wires in a boat.
