You can still use a 30 amp dock receptacle or 2 and "Y" them into your 50...you will still only draw 60 amps (or only 30 if using one leg) instaed od 100 (2x50) with a 50 cord...the nice thing is you CAN draw all that power when it IS available without worrying about loads.

Weekenders big deal but liveaboards all year get tired quickly of shedding loads..

FF why shed when you can just upgrade and have it available so you don't have to shed...especially when the installed noisemaker can supply it all too!
