I have put 6 photos in the amel forum group of the bow thruster de-
installation procedure. They illustrate to some extend to job to be
done. With the desription of Charlie Cronheim it will not be very
difficult to do the job in the water. Just make sure that you keep the
line that is fixed on the bow thruster tool inside the boat (front
cabine) while fishing in the water the the lower bow thruster part from
the deck of the boat.
