I wonder if hull speed is affected with a bow thruster in a sailboat?
not much because the tunnel in small. on ships this problem is solved with two covers on each sides of the tunnel. covers open when the thruster is needed and close when it is not needed. some tunnels have metal rods/ sticks in order to keep debris out.
