Default fuse block

http://bluesea.com/category/5/21/productline/125
I am running a 12 volt battery for my electronics. I know that will need to go positive post battery to positive post on the fuse block, likewise negative. My question is do I wire my electronics in the same column, positive wires from electronics over the positive post on fuse block? Please need help.

Cajun - I used the same Blue Seas fuse block and wired it as shown below - sorry I dont have a pic with the cover off but I think you get the idea by seeing the red and black leads for each piece of equipment and the leads from the block to the bus bar on the boat.

Dave, please don't take this the wrong way, but before you start this project, get yourself a good book on 12 volt boat wiring and study it. If you don't understand it, get some local help. If you don't know what you're doing you can cause a lot of damage.

If you have not bought the fuse panel yet, I highly recommend using an ST Blade style instead. Glass fuses, are difficult to change, difficult to read the rating, and tend to corrode.

Cajun - just sent a pm - sorry for the delay was off working on the boat. Had I to do it over again I would agree that the blade type fuses are a better way to go. I'm not too concerned about corrision on my set up but the glass fuses are hard to read - hence the labels on my fuse cover.
