    Just been told that the boat we are delivering to copenhagen has 380volt shore power. The marina doesnt. Hence flat house batteries.
    Never come across this so am wondering if it is really 110/230 volts as this would have more pins. At first i thought three phase as it has 3 inverters, but will check when i get there. Any one come across this ?

    That is almost certainly 3 phase, old Continental nominal 220 v to earth, 380 v between phases.

    Ir got better....struggled up the emden canaltowards Willemshaven only to be told at the last bridge we could get through on sunday that the canal was closed. No railway bridges would now open without two days notice...if then .
    A nice hippy bridgekeeper Bertholt then arranged for a railway man to cpme infrom Bremerhaven to let us through at 1.45 monday. Brilliant. Then through the biggest lock i have ever seen and off to Brunsbotel
    Lovely day out here in the Helgoland ��

    Well, we got there..18.00hrs on wednesday. The owner had turned into a raving control freak by then but at least we got there. He had a 380v lead on board but with a small plug for the shore end. I fitted a larger plug, using the old one as a pattern. It wouldnt work. As soon as it connected to the boat it tripped the shore power. If i had crossed the two blacks (both lives i think) could that have caused it? I dont see how as they are both lives...but i am not a sparks.
