My battery went dead in my speedster. So, I replaced it and forgot to put one of the butterflies on the terminal. Well, the positive cable came off the terminal and blew a fuse. Problem is that whenever I replace the fuse, it blows before I can get the thing in. I've tried disconnecting the battery (and everything else is already turned off by the way) and then putting the fuse in, but when I reconnect the battery, it just blows the fuse again. Can anyone help me figure out what is shorted out and how to fix this? It wont' even start at the moment.
I think I messed somethign up...BAD

Is it possible that there is another wire also supposed to be attached to that terminal and that wire popped off and got lodged somewhere causing a short? I don't know. My '96 Speedster has only a red and black wire on each battery. But my other boat has a couple wires attached to each post. What about are you positively sure that you have the red and black hooked up correctly? I know it sounds dumb but some batteries are made with the plus and minus posts the opposite of other batteries.
