Re: Bow thruster advise

Side power also an option. Having installed all of the above brands don't have a favorite except found Side Power distributed through Imtra to have superior support. Thrusters are not a DYI project. cutting large holes in your boat and building the structure back in takes some knowledge & skill. Also added battery & charging needs need to be discussed with a certified marine electrician. As performance & safety can be compromised. Find a yard who has skilled workers with experience with thrusters. Thrusters are one of the toughest jobs we do.
