Before checking between the shore power receptacle and the AC panel, I would recommend you check the three wires on the shore power cable itself to make sure that the cable is good.
Check each of the pins on the male plug against the three female sockets on the other end. The meter should read open for two of the three for each pin and near zero for the third.
If the cable is good,
then you should plug the cable back into the boat and bring the male end into the cabin and use it to check the shore power inlet to the main AC panel.
If the connections from the male end of the shore power cable to the main AC panel are good...
check to the first outlet on the AC side of the boat. If all of these connections check out...then the problem is at the Shore power post. If not, then there is a problem between the AC panel and the first outlet on the boat.

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.
