Re: Redoing shore power correctly
If your wire length, wire length as it came off the spool not as the crow flies, is more than 10' to the main breaker than you'll need an additional 30A main breaker at the inlet. The breakers for the outlets should be 15A branch breakers if using 15A breakers and they should be fed from a 30A main breaker. Buying a pre-made main + branch AC panel is usually less money than an individual main breaker panel and a sub panel..
GFCI's are required in the galley, head, engine/machinery spaces and any weather deck area.. Every outlet does not need to be GFCI..
