RE: Looks like I have avoided a fire

Yes we have two 30A inlets and two cords plus a 'Y' connector but I'm not sure what ends are on it, I'd go have a look but it's 4,000mls away!

I'll wait!

Just kidding.* The splitter will take the*240V/ and split it into two 120V / 30 amp services.* You will then plug them into your two receptacles and "Bobs you uncle" you will be good*to go for $82 a month.*

RE: Looks like I have avoided a fire

110V 50A was the way power was supplied in the 50's and 60's , very rare to find any location with this socket.

I would use a 50A 240 power hose from dock to boat inlet , and use CB from there to protect the wiring.

That way for most boats should a plug go south the unit will probably not burn.

Remember cheap GRP burns at 500% of oak , that's why Fire Retarding resin is demanded for boats that carry ( over 6) passengers for hire.
