Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bow Thruster Anomaly

Kent & Tom,

I am guessing that Amel added the screw and washer in later models. a little later than your Hull numbers. I have seen this before, but have not recorded the Hull numbers.

I think it is a good idea for you to add it to secure the lip seal and prevent the tube from pulling it out. If I were you, I would do is simple and easy.

SM 243 (1999) does not have the screw and washer.  I use blue RTV to hold the lip seal in place.  Since doing that and following all other instructions, I've had no water incursion.
