What kind of eletrical power do I need?

I am renting a slip and the marina asked me what kind of receptacles I need (30amp or 50amp) and how many of them. From the owners manual the boat appears to have two shore power sockets, but in the manual they only mention having one cord come standard. The manual does not say anything about what amperage the shore power should be. It is Boston Whaler Conquest 315. The 120V breakout panel looks like this:

What should I tell the marina?

Look at where the power comes in. If you have two receptacles probable one for ac and one for boat. Should state the amperage as well....

Re: What kind of eletrical power do I need?

My guess would be the boat with come with one 30 amp plug as standard and if you added Air Con to the options a 2nd 30 amp cord would be added. That would be typical for a boat of that size. If you have the top edge of that manual it might help. By the description shown I would say it's two 30 amp cords.

need the page above it that shows the main breakers and gen transfer swtiches.

I'm guessing you have dual 30a. but may not need both unless you are running air con at dock
