Your boat might already have them as they been recommended back in the 1970. The eagle is 1978 and has them. 600 amp for the start and 60 for the house and 30 for the inverter about a foot from the battery. Had an insurance audit and the first thing check where the battery fuses. We did not have one on the inverter. Another was AC breaker between the shore power boat plug and the main planel selector switch which the Eagle did not have, and most older boats do not. Not having is the cause of many boat fires. He found 19 problem items which we had 60 days to correct bring up to code.
