anyone had a waterjet type bow thruster im thinking of fitting one to a hudson 50
I have seen a system with a centrally located pump driven off the engine, with four pipes going to each "corner" of the vessel. Water flow is controlled by opening / closing solenoid valves. In fact it should be possible to move sideways!

You can move sideways with a normal bow thruster, too. Just use counter-rudder and the right amount of forward power, while actuating the thruster. It's one of the very most useful bow thruster tricks.
