For a more complete fix, just add tips above .....
almost almost almost.......better be careful I might have to ban myself....

Here's a couple solutions.

1. Buy a generator and plug into it instead of the dock.
2. Buy an inverter and plug the boat into IT (if you plug in your battery charger you can recharge the batteries too)
3. Get a really long power cord
4. Don't unplug. Who want's to leave the dock anyway. It's dangerous out there.

Under the premise that the only stupid question is the one you did not ask - give the guy some slack. Just a little. . . If a newbie to boating the concept of having two different type of electrical power on board - AC and DC - can be a bit daunting. Us ancient folks can remember having to work on and repair our automobiles and learned how DC systems worked. Cars these days are way too far beyond being able to be worked on by the owner. Everybody has to start somewhere and what seems like "way out" questions just may be honest and innocent. Although this one stretches that a little. Still in current times I have been asked - what is a DC system?

Now Fuzzy, you're a moderator and really need to keep a better watch on yourself, now that the BBQ boy is busy elsewhere.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

BBQ boy is still here, he's afraid to untie his dock lines.
