Need new shore power cables . . .

I think the time has come for me to order some new shore power cables, since the old ones are not only old and weather-beaten (a pretty good description of myself, actually), but also corroded.

The dock pedestal is a 50-amp pedestal, so I need two new 30-amp cables plus a 50-amp to 30-amp Y.

All this seems straightforward enough, but when I went to the Defender website to look at some there are lots of different choices. Kind of like buying breakfast cereal at the grocery store I guess.

So for a 36-foot trawler, which I get down to only now and then, I wouldn't think that I need the more expensive spread. But before ordering, thought that I would ask my usual experts for advice. Any and all is welcome.
