Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] SM Bow thruster propellers & 70 MM key for the rudder shaft nut

It will be interesting to see if the 70 mm works well or if in tightening it you split the much weaker bushing. 
I'd give that move and a SS bow thruster lots of extra thought before I changer the proven systems.

Hello Gang,

1. A member here has found BT propellers made of ALU.

Same attachment as original but for the material... you keep the safety of the plastic bolts in the event of contact with unknown substance.

2. I have a SS specialist make me a 70 MM key to tighten the packing nut on the rudder shaft.

If interested in either component, post to my email address and I will try to get a group buy going.
