There are two kinds of small shore power connections in Europe
-- the 16 amp CEEform "blue plugs", and (on the continent, especially Northern Europe), the Schuko socket (CEE 7/4) like in a house.
The CEEform plugs cost bupkins and can be installed in three minutes. Just pop off that Marinco plug and install the blue plug. No need to mess with an adapter.
For cruising Northern Europe I carry in addition:
1. Schuko plug to CEEform 16 amp blue socket adapter
2. A UK BS1363 household plug to CEEform 16 amp blue socket adapter
3. A CEEform 16 amp blue plug to BS1363 socket adapter in case you need to run a power tool or something else directly from a shore power outlet
4. A CEEform 16 amp blue plug to double CEEform 16 amp blue socket adapter in case there are no free sockets and you need to piggyback with someone
5. A 32amp 3-phase red CEEform plug to 3x 16 amp blue CEEform sockets adapter, for commercial
harbours where there are no small sockets. Two other boats can plug in with you. You may earn a lot of free beer
with this one.
You can make the adapters yourself. The CEEform plugs and sockets are cheap
yet extremely reliable -- worlds better than the awful Marinco plugs. You will be happy to be using them.
