If you look in the photos section you can find a Bow Thuster tool made by Amel that can be used to pull out a stuck bow thruster shaft. I got one from Amel and was finally able to remove the shaft from the motor housing. That allowed me to clean up all the rust from the motor housing that was binding on the shaft, and lubricate the shaft and motor housing with corrosion resistant grease.
It removes much more easily now.
Currently in Isles des Saintes, Guadeloupe.
