Shore power problem! Burned ground wire at main breaker

Yes! Hi Marlene. Thanks for the note, great screen name. Stop by sometime and I will show you and Sonny the boat.

Still researching the electrical problem, but since DC power is unaffected...I will be sailing this weekend

Shore power problem! Burned ground wire at main breaker

Hi Everyone,

I would appreciate some comments and advice. This past weekend I found that the main breaker kept clipping off when I hooked up shore power. Tested the dockside outlet, cable and receptacle onboard. All good. Got down to the main breaker and found that the black ground wire was burned a bit.

I of course will be calling a yacht electrician, but would appreciate any comments so that I could be better educated about what to do. I am supposing that this could have been caused by a voltage spike from shore power and just replacing the wire and box will be fine. BUT, I am concerned that there could be a fault within the boat and how to ascertain this.

The boat is a 1985 Wauquiez Hood 38 Mark II. Got it in March. No problems until now.

My best to all and thank you in advance.
