Re: Update to Bow Thruster will not go down

No problem.  I am by no means an expert but it sounds like Stefan might be able to assist you in identifying the component and possibly sourcing a similar one to replace it.  Here is a link to a diode that is similar to the one that was used in the Bowthruster PCBs found in later model SMs like mine:

And if the trace is indeed damaged beyond repair, you can solder a small piece of wire in it's place to complete the circuit between the two through-holes that the trace previously connected.
