Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Starting the vessel with out without shore power is the same procedure. In regards ***** ***** question " Not sure EXACT steps to start boat with shore power and to turn off boat with shore power."
Power would be shut down at the panel prior to connecting or disconnecting shore power. (If batteries are not already on at this time, you would turn them on) For starting the vessel you would have your normal checklist first checking over your engine and vessel prior to starting and checking your fluids, you would then run through all systems confirming all systems are functioning that are required and that all safety gear is within date, good and all in place based on the number of passengers on the vessel, from here you would next turn on your bilge blowers and then next start your engine(s) one at a time observing water output and are having no problems letting them slightly warm up before disconnecting from dock and going under way.
Thank you!
