Re: Maramu bow thruster

Why another battery? when you use bow thruster the engine is on, like when you use windlass you haven't another battery.Less weight but the important is the correct wiring's section.
I don't know the power of my bow thruster (I have a Sharki but is the same model mounted originally on Maramu), but is largely sufficient.
Of course a retractable model is preferable than a tube-installed model.

I am in the Med (at the moment near Athens but may go to Tureky later) and am thinking of having a bow thruster installed. 10hp should suffice together with a battery in the forepeak that can be charged with the normal house batteries. Has anyone got any experience where I can get the tube professionally installed and then the bow thruster?

Thanks, Horst Maramu 168, Puddleduck
