I saw this post below about the installation of a hydraulic bow thruster to ferr cement hull. I'm also in the process of looking into this and wondering if you could provide any information. My preference would be a hydraulic thruster rather than electrical.
I recommend a fiberglass tube for your ferro-cement hull and also recommend an end connection method that does not require fiberglass to adhere to the concrete. If you'd like to send me a personal note, I'll give you my email address and send sketches, a step-by-step process, and a thruster recommendation. Getting the tube in the right place is the most important issue - if it's too shallow or too short, the thruster will not perform properly no matter what else you do. A very heavy 60 footer is getting to the limits of an electric thruster, so I'll also provide some information on a hydraulic unit.

We have just installed a Fischer Panda Super 7 in our Halberg Rassy 49, and I would like to get your PDF on wet exhaust systems to be sure the installation will not suffer the problems mentioned in the recent CF thread on the subject.
