Fairline 36 sedan bow thruster tips

Post by Philip » Sun Jun 24, 2007 10:10 pm

I'm considering installing a bow thruster in my 36 sedan (same hull as a turbo).

Has anyone any tips as to make and size - I'm thinking a vetus95 or poss sidepower., with a 185mm tunnel

And any photos showing a good tunnel position would be a great help

We fitted one a few years ago to a sedan 36 and i think we shortened the lower drawer under the forward bunk or removed the drawer body.

Otherwise a relatively easy fit.

I have 36 Sedan do you really need a thruster ?

I seem to recall from somewhere -- possibly MBM or MBY -- someone quoting Fariline as saying 4 hp max. So you may want to inquire with Fairline as to what power and then make your decision as to which make/model.
There is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- even half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
