[Amel Yacht Owners] Anti torque bow thruster modification

Beaute Olivier

Hello Alan (Alan?),

if you post a picture of your bow-thruster from the front cabin, I will tell you if you have the anti-torque system or not.

Have a good day.

I'm just migrating this discussion from the Amel FB page as you guys seem to be more technically inclined. With reference to a question I had about too much 'play' in my newly acquired SM 97, I came across some documentation about an anti-torque mechanism that apparently was standard fit after 2003 but can be retro fitted to pre 2003 bow thrusters. Anyone fitted one and if so, does it work?


When I acquired SM 243 (1999) I found the uninstalled anti torque mechanism aboard.  Instructions were also present.  It wasn't hard to install.  I didn't use the BT prior to installation, so don't have anything to compare, but my thruster has no delay.
