boat wiring

ok got the 50hp fired up and voltmeter jumped so it is charging the battery....However i had all my accessories disconnected and noticed i have 3 red positive wires all inline fused with 30A and only 2 black negative wires. is this correct? i have a 6 panel circuit breaker...1 for lights 5A, 1 for nav. lights 5A, 1 for horn 10A, 1 for livewell in 2A, another for livewell in 2A, and the last one for livewell/bilge out 2A...i have a 12v outlet plug and i know my console fishfinder is on it too but i guess they are not wired on the breaker. the reason i'm asking is my fishfinder went dead and the power trim/tilt on the big motor was very sluggish when we got in for the day we only fished about 5hrs. with just the fishfinder on...i don't know why the battery wore down so fast any thoughts?
