Re: Have I lost the bow thruster prop ?
Hi Nick,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Replacing the prop in water is an easy task; best done by a diver.
If you have the Amel spare, it came with a new hub. Remove the old hub by unscrewing the nylon bolts. Note the shear is still in good condition...
Replace with now propeller,
NOTE: on our boat we apply rigorously the 2 second rule between toggling P or S. this ensures the prop is fully stopped before powering in the other direction. Lost 2 props in the learning days.... no more since “the rule”.
