Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bow Thruster


Barbara Nairne
 

Hi Bill,Thank you for your reply.I have checked the photos and info from the Amel group and the thruster on the older Amel is a little different.I attach a photo.The motor is very rusted and I am having an electrician check it out tomorrow.The retraction part the so called experts say does need to be rebuilt.I have emailed Amel to see if they can supply a new one.This may be the best solution

  Barb, The bow thruster is made by Amel. Since the people that you already spoke with did not know that, they are the wrong people to use.There are a few Aussies and Kiwis that own Amels and may be able to give you some directions. Maybe they will chime in on this post. I can and will talk you through some troubleshooting via phone. Check timezones I am in Italy. Call the number below, or write me at bill"at"svbebe.comIn the mean time, go to the Files and Photos section of the Yahoo Group for Amel Yacht Owners and download bow thruster information. You can find it in Photos by searching in Photos for the word: thruster. Do the same thing in the Files section. If you have problems finding things, call me.Bill Rouse

  Hi,Does anyone know the make of Bowthruster in my Amel.It is totally dead - I need replacement motor and retraction arm.I have taken it to 3 places in Surfers (Qld) Australia and everyone says if I knew the make they may be able to assist.
Thanks in advance if anyone knows.
