If you moved to a new slip that's equipped with shorepower but your boat is not, there some way to use this shorepower aboard your boat.

Look at the dock plug and verify the amperage/voltage. The most common size is a 125-volt/30-amp plug with three prongs arranges in a circular pattern. It's designed to twist on and lock in place.

To plug in a standard household electrical or extension cord, you'll need an adapter. Marinco and Hubbell both make adapters available at most marine stores. The dry area adapter from Marinco (125V/30A shorepower to household style, #81 is about $40. The wet area adapter is 105A and costs about $60.

Keep in mind, howeve r, that shorepower centers are designed to supply boat power, and are not for use as general purpose AC outlets. If you plug directly into the shorepower center, you have no GFCI protection against electrocution. Instead, you could plug into an outlet on the boat so you're protected by a 15A breaker and a GFCI circuit. Or, you can purchase a portable GFCI and install it inline on the extension cord of the power tool or appliance.
