There are going to be some different opinions on how to do it and depending on where you place everything, there will certainly be cleaner ways to wire everything, but this should give you the jist of how everything should be wired. Basically, I am using the negative lug on your isolator as the grounding block for the whole system and isolating the stereo to one battery and the engine/boat to the other battery. To clean things up, you could get another distribution block, run one negative lead to the block and then run the negatives of your amps and head unit to that block.

Here is a schematic I developed from my brothers setup and I copied it in my boat. Not as pretty as your picture but it might help.
