It was pinned on initial passage to Sint Maarten and then to Le Marin. But now pin will not go in because shaft is too far up. I pulled pin to use at Le Marin but did not notice rigging issues or dangling sensor. Using it with inoperable sensor and rigging out of alignment allowed unit to jam - I think.

Was the bow thruster pinned in the UP position for the passage?
If it were me, I would go to Amel in le Marin for them to adjust. You may have burned up the actuator motor that lifts and lowers.
