I agree with JRP and suggest simplifying it heaps..

Buy a small Aqua-Signal or similar AC power panel (the smallest you can get) and connect one outlet and maybe the battery charger to it - nothing else. At least that way if you ever find yourself at a dock with shore-power you have some use for it.
