    I was wondering if there is anyway to fix this without replacing the entire switchboard

    any help is appriciated

    So you are suggesting I should just buy a new switch panel?

    Usually the male terminal is an integrated part of the switch....and they aren't replaceable.

    Not having seen your 'switch panel' I can't say if the switch is easily replaced as a separate unit....some can be, some can't be....if you can remove the switch easily then you have to identify and obtain the correct (or suitable) replacement....

    It might be possible to take the switch apart and soldier wire or an extension. Sometimes there's an fuse/breaker for each switch and you can attach there (if you know what you're doing). Or you can forget about that part of the panel and duplicate it elsewhere.

    How old is the boat? There is a good chance that if that terminal fell off, that the rest of the panel is not far behind. It depends on the overall condition of the panel.
