The breakers on Quickmick's boat are definitely not marine grade. They're home depot material stock Square D brand... Here are the photos:
The wiring is probably ROMEX and the stuff is probably wired with wire nuts... all of which are bad ideas on a boat. This stuff needs to be replaced ASAP.
The marine stuff is pretty standardized. If you need a shorepower panel, sailorssolutions.com has a nice little one for fairly reasonable money. Looks like this:
They also sell a decent heat shrink terminal ratcheting crimper for far less than WM, only $39.95...
Sailnet usually has some good prices on electrical gear, so worth giving them a shot at it...and defender's spring sale is going on right now, ends this sunday...so they're worth a look too.

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.
