It is required that shore power (the line from the pedestal to your boat) be marine designed and properly connected. A marine shore power cord differs form your home or RV outdoor cords primarily in the boat connection side. These cords have a secure locking mechanism (usually a locking ring, though newer ones have clips). The locking mechanism provides a secure physical connection plus properly engages the weatherproof seal. 

West Marine has an excellent article on boating electrical - see #3 in their "Ten Deadly Conditions" advisory about the use of the locking ring for shore power.

See Gerry Giles for options on available marina discounts on cords, inlets and other boating accessories and supplies. 

Did you know there is an AED in the clubhouse? AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator, and the Reviver AED has clear verbal instructions that walk you through the process, step-by-step. Please check out this You Tube introduction to the Reviver: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiwUo0lst9k 

The video is only an overview. The manufacturer and the Red Cross strongly recommend that people seek formal training. The red Cross offers both online and classroom training at an affordable cost, visit their training webpage HERE. A training dvd from the manufacturer is also available at the clubhouse in the rack just left of the AED.
