Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bowthruster spinning

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>


This is valuable information about the SidePower Thruster on the 54.

The pin that you mention: 
  • Are you referring to the propeller locking pin (possibly shear-pin)? 
  • There is 1 of these pins for each of the two propellers. I assume that if 1 propellor isn't working it would probably be the pin for that propellor. 
  • Did you experience both of the propellor pins failing at the same time?
  • And, is the pin designed to shear?
