125/250 50 amp shore power cord

Cleaning out the boat shed. I downgraded to 30 amp and upgraded to SmartPlug boat connection so no longer need this.

50 amp 125/250 V cord, 50'. No evidence of overheating, burns or shorts on the plugs. The cord is faded and has a few stains from boat projects but the insulation is good.

The rubber boot around the female end has a small split about 1" where the cord exits. The threaded locking ring on the male end is good and uncracked.

Cheapest I could find on the internet for new was $460. Asking $200 plus shipping from north Florida. It weighs about 40 lbs so shipping could be $25-$35 or more in the US. Will ship overseas if you're down island.

Re: 125/250 50 amp shore power cord

Any interest? Best offer? Free shipping?

Maybe take it to the recycling center and sell it for the copper?

I'll bet it'll fit in a USPS flat rate box >>> https://www.prioritymail.com/flatrates.asp

Not unless the USPS has bigger boxes than the ones I've seen at the local PO. This cord is 50' and about 1" diameter. I tried and could roll it up into a 12" diameter coil but it would make a pretty tall stack when finished.

Maybe if I cut it up into short lengths and stacked them in the box.

Re: 125/250 50 amp shore power cord

A few weeks ago I got 40' of 2/0 battery cable in their biggest box (12 x 12 x 5-1/2) and still had room to spare in the center. If you were to roll it real tight with the ends in the middle, and tie-wrap it, it might fit. Donno?

Hey, if I get any interest from anyone in buying the cord I'll give it the old college try.

Sorry not clear which both you mean? The cord and the connectors? But they are from two different people.

Yes, but........

Cord came with the boat and I never used it and made some incorrect assumptions based on a cursory inspection of the panel and connector on the boat. Turns out this cord is kind of an oddball rig.

The end that I though was 4 conductor 250V turned out to be three conductor, 50 amp 125V. I confirmed the cord has only three wires so cannot be used for 250V. Well not safely or correctly. You could run 50 amp 250V but you would have to go without the ground wire, a very, very bad idea.

So it would work only for a 30 or 50 amp 125 V: one hot, one neutral, one ground. If interested I can change out one or the other end to fit your shore power connections at my cost for the new plug.

OK. Just look closely at the photos in my first post. Those are the actual end connectors on the cord so make sure they fit what you got.
