Bow Thruster


I have sailed a sistership to my boat that has a Vetus thruster in a tube. The difference in performance was not at all apparent in its steering, or speed.

I had an opportunity to use the thruster - helping to re-anchor in a narrow creek off the Chesapeake. Its effect is pretty impressive. I think your dock charging days would be over. Bring a fat checkbook though! I wish I had one on my boat.
