MD, you are not out of the woods yet.
You have created a suicide cord set.
I sure hope none takes your 50 amp service plug
and cord set, that you created, and then plugs it into a US wired 30 amp 120 boat-side.
As now the boat-side Line 1 will be at 120v, and so will the boat-side earth be at 120v, 180 degrees apart.
Big Bang Theory=unhappy sailor.
Also marina management, as it will most likely blow some transformers, and the voltage spikes across many of the neighbors boats is going to cost you also some big dollars.

I've got a standard 30A boat side to my cord/socket, and a 50A 120/240 male plugged into a 50A 120/240 service
... Not all are dual voltage, so do some research
... Anyway... There are two hot leads in this plus a neutral and ground... I've got the 2 hot and ground wired to the boat...
The 30A cord is plenty cause at 240, we're halving our current
