Re: DC/AC grounding

I'm confused. Maybe the image I have of shore power connection is wrong. Isn't there an isolation transformer between shore power and the boat load? And aren't the grounds between the two (shore power and boat load) isolated as in not connected? If this is the case then how does DC current flow between boats?
No such thing as a free cat, and that goes for boats as well.
