Grizzly won't start, has power

I have a 2003 Yamaha Grizzly 660. It has power. The lights turn on and work like nomral. the LCD panel works and turns on just fine...Basicaly all the lights work. I have also just charged the battery too. But it won't start. Pressing the electric start button doesn't prouduce any sound at all. The grizzly ran fine the day we were ridinig it. we took it through some really deep water though and it was stil running. of course that has nothing to do with the starting system while it was running was running. Now we are thinking if it could be a fuse. There is a red thick wire leading from the battery to this thing with a fuse in it. on one side there is a 30 amp(or something) fuse...there is a nother slot on the other side. Does a 30 amp(or something) fuse go there too? what other problems could it be?

That's the starter relay you are talking about. It has 2 fuses. One for the relay and the other is a spare. You can switch that one fuse to the other side but I doubt that is your problem if it ran awhile ago. They don't just fall out.
Anyway you should first make sure your battery connections are all clean and all the connections on the starter relay. Then look down near your dipstick for a black ground cable that is bolted to the engine. Remove it and clean up the copper ends with a wire brush. You may have to remove the side panel to see it.
With the key on go to your starter relay and use a screwdriver or something and jump across the two posts. If the engine turns over and starts then your starter relay is shot. This is assuming you have a GOOD battery and have cleaned up all the connections I told you about.
