Does anybody have a bow thruster that is powered by an electric
12 volt hydraulic pump
I currently have a bow thruster for my boat
that is powered by mechanical hydraulic pump
attached to an old 20kw genset via a reducer (I guess slowing down the RPMs).
I would like to remove the dependency of the generator
without having to replace the whole system.
I am trying to find 12 volt pumps but not sure of the specs I am looking for like GPM and HP of the motor
needed (if I need to buy motor
separate from the pump). So if anybody can give me the specs they have for their boat
that will give me a frame of reference to search for.
I do know that the system has a max of 3,000 psi and that is all. Come to think of it, all I really need is an 12 volt electric motor
that will mount to the existing pump but once again, no idea the HP of motor or RPMs needed to reach the GPM and PSI to run a bow thruster on a 55ft (54,000 #) boat.
