I’m thinking about adding a bow thruster, mainly for single-handed docking
situations. We are only looking at a 24VDC tube design, not an electric
or hydraulic dropdown style. I see several thread on the site referencing Max Power, Lewmar
, Quick and Side-Power. I will due the research
for which model, but I am asking for comments as follows:
1. Is this a DYI project
? I am very mechanically inclined and understand electrical wiring
2. Does anyone have experience with Side-Powers Proportional Control?
3. If you had a yard install it, what did they charge you?
I guess that’s a start for this thread & we’ll go from there. No rush on this as this project
is only my thinking so far and has not even been mentioned to “the boss”!
