Bow Thrusters


Rambler has a bow thruster; and why not? The boat is 60ft long and it’s sometimes difficult to turn in a basin when the wind is up. But when I use it, I often receive sneering comments suggesting that I am not a proper boater if I have to use the aid of a bow thruster. It doesn’t bother me, but I am curious to know how many people share this view? So please let me (and others) know what you think.

  1. There is no reason why one should not use a bow thruster be it electric, hydraulic or just a simple wooden pole. They all do the same job.

    The traditionalists who poo poo the thruster are the same people who seem to forget there are no cargo deadlines anymore and as such there is no rush.
