120 VAC GFCI Outlet

One of my GFCI outlets keeps tripping and I want to replace it. Do I just go to Home Depot/Lowes to get one or is there one that is designed for marine environments?

No, there aren't any "marine rated" GFCI outlets; and yes you can get one at Lowes, Home Depot, etc.
I like the ones with a green "power on" pilot lite (a couple $ more).
