where to shop for elect. outlets/boxes

Installing shore power on our PY23.
Obtained shore power cord, inlet receptacle, power panel and galvanic isolator.
Having difficulty locating marine outlets, 1 gfci and probably 2 others for ??
Also looking for triplex, I know Westmarine sells, but would like to know of other sources.
Also require outlet boxes to hold outlets.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Most boats I have been on, worked on, or owned have household boxes and gcfis installed. Marinco sells both standard and gcfi outlets but they look about the same as household ones. There might be a difference but my local dealer doesn't stock them so I haven't seen them. And gcfis are designed for moist areas so should be able to exist on a boat without a problem. An excerpt from the Marinco catalog below.

Thanks Brian,
I was looking at the ABYC regulations and the requirements of UL514A, and UL514C (11.15.3.1).
That covers the outlet boxes, I will look further into the reptacles, I agree that the receptacles look like the home depot style.
