I agree. However my marina has 50A/120v power pedestals and my boat has a 50A/120v service. This wasn't planned btw, just a fortuitous accident. My sailboat needed a 50A to 30A adaptor at this slip and my boat needs the same when away from our home dock as most transient marinas that I visit have 30A service.

Before I bought a 50A/125V power cord, I was using a 30A cord with an adaptor at either end.
