Dave, Bel Ami,
My bowthruster has a small see-through reservoir mounted in the
port side cabinet in the V-birth with a feed tube down to the bowthruster.
It is easy to monitor the fluid level and add the 90 weight oil. The
reservoir holds about 0.3 liters.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Quantity of bowthruster oil
I have the bowthruster out for changing oil and seals. I have gotten
conflicting info regard quantity of 90 weight oil to put in. One
source says .3 liters, the other source 3/4 quart, which is much more.
Any quick advice is appreciated!
