Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Bowthruster does not rise far enough on Super Maramu
My Amel Super Maramu #376 Kimberlite has electronic sensors on the bow
thrusters lift assembly . They are attached with clamps around the assembly.
What do theses sensors do and how are they adjusted?

I am not sure that your setup is the same as the one on Wanderer
hull # 283. So this is how I adjust my Bow thruster.
If you observe the assembly as it rises and falls you will see that
there is a rod with two metal arrows on it.One at the top and the
other on the bootom. These arrows press on a button and this tells
the motor when to stop running. These arrows can be adjusted quite
easily using and allen wrench. Its quite simple once you do it.

partly removing the motor as well as changing the seals and theoil in
the bow thruster prop assembly. I have it all back together nowbut I
cannot get the whole thing to ascend far enough to put the safetypin
in place unless someone stands under the boat (it is on the hard)and
pushes up with some force. Before this maintenance, I could insertadjust
things so that I can get the motor to rise a small amount more sothat
I can insert the safety pin? There were two spongy seals onbetween
the prop assembly and the hull, so I replaced them with two newseals.
Could two seals be the source of the problem?
