Hello

I am a new member, that recently bought a 2002 Beneteau 473.

I live in the Middle East and the boat is a great boat for sailing in the local waters. Lot's of room and sails very well.

One small question, that may seem dumb. The boat came without a power cable for shorepower. When I look on the web or in local stores, they question whether I need 15 amp, or 25 amp?

Also, are the male and female plugs the same on all boats, or do I need to worry about the power cable fitting the female shorepower plug that is in the boat?

What is the difference? The boat did not come with an owners manual, but I was able to print one from the internet, although a 2004 version.

I want to be sure that I have the proper cable to match the boat.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Regards

Jbad
