Electric problems on a Mainship 390

Does anybody know a good boat electrician in the Fort Lauderdale area?
I had an electrician look and he has no idea - I did most of the diagnosing myself.

Here is the issue. I have 2 30 amps coming from a 50 amp shore power.
I used to have AC1 and AC2 power on the boat.
Last week something went wrong.
I have no power coming into the boat electric panel on AC2. (The electrician proved that much).
There is power coming to the boat (Again proved by the electrician).
So to run things off AC2 I have to switch AC2 to generator (Without the generator on).
Its as if the power consumed from AC2 then pulls from AC1.
I did switch around the input to the boat and same results.
Hence need for an electrician that understands boats
Any recommendations or suggestions would be awesome!
