Yep that's a breaker panel. Those breakers are widely available at most marine stores.

I agree with Oliver, not sure where you keep your boat but take that panel to the local West Marine(there's a few near Daneville CA). They should have exact duplicate switches on the shelf for you.

If you keep your boat in the Bay or Delta send me a private message. FlyWright set up a small group for us to schedule meet ups and we are fairly active. Welcome to the forum

It's not a fuse panel it's a circuit breaker panel. And you don't need to take the panel to West Marine or another vendor. Take one of the broken circuit breakers after removing and tagging the wires.

You need to know the current rating of the damaged circuit breakers. It's often marked on the handle but it should also be on the body of the circuit breaker.

BTW: Unplug the shore power cable before you work on the panel.

edit: The one marked "Main" is most likely a two pole breaker while the others are single pole. Maybe you should take the main breaker and one of the others as well.

Welcome aboard! The previous posts are correct, you should be able to walk into any marine store and buy replacement circuit breakers.

If you want a pretty new panel, Newmar and Blue Sea have ready made panels or will custom make one for you.
