Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Bow Thruster Rusted Shut

Mark is giving you good advice, go slow and have patience. My bow thruster was stuck as well but after a couple days of spraying penetrants in the holes and lots of gentle tapping it came out. I used a raw hide mallet to do the tapping to prevent damage but a block of wood and a steel hammer should work as well. I think that taps from each side alternating helps to loosen the joint between the motor and the shaft. If you search on this subject there have been a lot other owners that were able to remove bow thrusters that were stuck.
Best of luck,
