Hi Carol & George,I am confused as to why the bow thruster tube should be angled so much more on the port side. Is there a specific technical reason for this?Kevin
HI Kevin, the only reason is that the starboard side ‘angle’ has not yet been fitted. The ‘angle’ can be seen inside the boat by the tube in one of the pictures above.
… and better!!
I believe that the trailing edge of the tunnel is faired to reduce drag.Joe
Thanks Joe, Ian told us that it will also reduce cavitation at the end of the tube.
Oh yes, I see it now, and I understand the reply from Joe too...There's hope for me yet LOL
