Check your bow thruster propeller. A blade may be cracked. It may have barnacles. It may have line entangled...even monofilament.
It will sound different between Port and Starboard thrusts.

Hey everyone -
This is not the standard bow thruster question on the forum...
My bow thruster is working just fine however, I noticed today that while using port bursts it sounds a bit louder than it usually does. Starboard bursts sound as they always do. Performance is the same. There seems to be a bit more vibration during the port burst but not the starboard bursts. I have not had a chance to look at it yet, will do tomorrow just wondering if anyone had the same experience/solution. Maybe the propeller needs replacing?
P.S. I saw Ipanema sail past me in Boston Harbor today and she looked fantastic!!!
It's all Good
