Re: Reinsert SM Bow Thruster after service


You also need to clean the rust from the bottom of the motor in the opening for the bow thruster tube, then use a lot of waterproof grease. This clip from my Amel Book may help you:

Hi Danny

that is a good tip to wriggle the propellor when trying to reconnect the 2 parts, I'll try it tomorrow.  I always had it well oiled, and greased the area where the 2 parts join, but I never greased into the lower part or spline.  I will also do that, as I see Nikimat also did it.  Hopefully tomorrow will be less frustrating.
