2007 E-tec 115 battery cable connection points on engine

I want to be careful on connecting cable to correct location on engine.  Pictures in rigging manual do not clearly show exact location of positive or negative terminals.  Any help or  color picture of the cable connects is desired if possible.

To what rigging manual are you referring?

Thank you for quick reply.  I was referring to the 2007 Service Manual Evinrude, Section covering "Installation and Predelivery" and the sub section "Boat Rigging" pages 34 to 36.  I have searched the manual and I am still not sure.  I believe the connection point for for cable is on the starboard side of the engine but not sure on the exact point for negative terminal.

I believe I have found the answer right in front of me in the Service Manual. Page 116 shows "Ground Stud-Battery" and page 123 shows POS Battery connection point.. Not careful reading on my first past. Thanks again for quick reference to "what manual?" put me back on the right track.
