The best thing you could do is call an electrician, if you don't know much or scared of electricity this would be the best thing. You need more info up here to determine your exact electrical needs, I'm GUESSING that the wire size would at least need to be 1/0 wire to run 70 [email protected] a distance of 200' (1 50 amp plug, 2 20 amp plugs) with this you'll need 2 strands of black 1/0 for the 220v and a 1 neutral wire of the same guage (1/0)that is white, you'll want to run a green wire(10-12 guage) for ground and you'll want to install GFCI breakers for dock use. By running 220v, you can have 2 independant 115v circuits. Your breaker boxes must have the same rating that you want for the total amperage(70 amps). Reduce the amount of amps(current) and you can reduce the wire size. Size of wire is detemined by the total amount of amperage vs. length of run. Also there is a big difference between copper wire and aluminum wire. You'll want something like THWN wire (insulation on wire). BTW..I'm not an electrician by trade
