Can,t help with the panel, not enough information.You should get a qualified ABYC electrical technician to solve this. Alternating current can kill you. You said you got a spark when you plugged in. Always shut the dock breaker off before connecting or disconnecting your shore power cord. Failure to do so will result in arcing, the finish will pit on the cord contacts resulting in corrosion and higher resistance which will create heat and eventually destroy the receptacle and the cord if not the boat.
