Still electrically challenged..... !
Two 30 amp plugs to a single 50 amp 250 volt female plug adapter.

My boat is wired for a 50 amp 250 volt plug. I have no 230 volt appliances, only 120 volt equipment on the boat. When I'm at a marina without a 50 amp 250 volt receptacle, I use the above adapter which limits me to 30 amps on each leg.

This is not a recommendation for you to use it on your boat as I don't know how your boat is wired, this is just what I use on my boat and works for me.
