Marina - Shore Power

I'm quoting on some marina repairs, and looking for any information you might have to help me out. I'm not really sure where to look in the code book. The job is to rewire about 12 slips, they each need a 30A rec for the boat to plug into. Wondering if they need to be gfci protected. The existing docks are all wooden, and need to be removed every winter, so all the wiring will need to be able to be disconnected.

Wire the dock receptacles to get their power from shore mounted receptacles so they can be unplugged and stored for the winter with the docks.

That's what I was thinking to do. There are 3 sections of dock, so I am planning to put in 4 eaton power pedestals, with a 100A line running between each, and where ever the docks will need to be separated put a 100A water tight 4 pin connector. then have a 100A receptacle at the shore for that run to plug into.

I couldn't find section 78 in the code book because I was looking at ps knights simplified commercial and industrial version. For some reason they don't have section 78 in there. I managed to find a cec book though.

I have a pdf copy of the 2015 Ontario Electrical Safety Code on Google docs if you want a copy just PM me your email address (you're in Ontario doing this are you not?)
