Re: Power Cord/Adapter Issues

The hardwire option is interesting, Brian, and something I hadn't considered. I go bow in, and the boat's plug is basically at the transom. I had considered adding another shore power plug near the bow to shorten the run. The one-time cost would probably be about what a 50' cord will run me.

I had read about the Smartplugs. Did you wire up the boat end of the cable yourself? If so, how expensive was the connector? I have 4 different power cables, but only 2 of them are good (one 25' and one 50'). The boat ends came off both of my other cords.
