Twin 30 amp lines is a much more flexible setup, in my opinion... Plus, one can use both to double the length of one's shore cord if necessary, should one ever venture beyond marinas with power outlets within easy reach, and "the American middle class way of life" ... :-)


OK, except many pedestals only have (1) 30 amp outlet. Then what do you do?
And I would rather deal with 1 shore power cord than 2. Even if the 1 is somewhat larger. Big deal. I can handle it.

Oh, and I have a 50 foot 220 / 50 amp cord, plus an old one too.... so, I can reach a long way for power, but only have to do it once.

Rock on.

Well, if I needed to run both 30 amp lines, I'd just pull out one of these...

I'm glad you're happy with your preference for a larger boat, all I'm saying is that it is not one shared by everyone...

However, I'll freely admit, it sounds like I'd far happier with your boat, than you would be with a little tub like mine :-)

Re: Sailing "big boats"

Doug,
We strongly considered a CT56 and a CT65/Scorpio 72 before we bought our I65. Bob has such beautiful designs.

As for us we are not ready to give any creature comforts up yet, and size is just to important for our crowd as of yet. If it was just the wife and I, I'm sure we could make do with considerably smaller. I seriously doubt I could convince my boss to ever give up this home though.

Electrical is soooo fun... lol We have a 50amp and two 30amp and both 50htz and 60htz complete systems.
