Hello,

I have a 1984 Northstar. I was looking for the fuse block and was unable to find it. I traced all the wires from the instruments and nothing. Is this common for this type of boat? Should I install one?

Good Afternoon: I find it beyond belief that a manufacturer would not install a fuse block or linkage in an electrical system. Quite frankly it is not legal to wire a marine system, without some sort of protection.

I would all but insist that, for you, and all others , that a fuse block be installed. You can contact customerservice@go2marine.com. They will be happy to assist.

Thank you.

Hello ddgrfn; me too grew up going to Chavez Ravine. I saw Koufax pitch several times. About fuse block, there are several ways to rig a boat. I prefer to have a common buss for ground and a fuse block with 6 or more circuits. If there is a short, it will only blow the fuse assigned to that circuit or designated accessory. Some times boats are wired with one main fuse. I don't like that because if you have a problem with one circuit, it shuts everything down. This could leave you dead in the water just because (for example) your bilge blower is shorted out. I hope this answers your question.
