Thanks. I have downloaded the bow thruster service information and reviewed it. This boat has the straight shaft instead of the C-drive. The prop is currently fixed. I will do the continuity check you suggested. I want to better understand the wiring in the boat since I understand that it is somewhat unique and I am sure that given the vintage that there will be wiring requiring replacement. Can you tell me if there is a lightning grounding system on an Amel? Thanks for the method used to grease the discharge seacocks.
Would a 1987 Maramu with the retractable bow thruster have the same service and seals as the Sanotrin?
The following are links to a direct download of the files that you should look at for servicing the propeller shaft Wear Bushing and the Amel Bow Thruster.
These are written for a Super Maramu. The wear bushing directions should apply to all Amel Wear Bushings from Santorin to the 64. The Bow Thruster will apply to all Amel retractable bow thrusters, however these had some modifications over the years...
