Re: Bow thruster advise
But, this boat has a full long, deep keel with plenty of room for the thruster up forward. She also has an incredible amount of other storage space.
Again, plenty of room for the three battery banks we are planning on installing.
Weight forward is not an issue as there are three led ingots (150#) currently below where we are going to install the thruster.
As for reasons, I am almost exclusively sailing single handed out of a marina with a strong river current that pins the boat against the dock. Additionally, in a couple of years I am headed over to the Med and with the docking systems they use a thruster is a really nice thing to have.
Finally, the installation is really not that expensive since the boat is already in the mist of a major refit.
Thanks for the input.
