Default help on bow thruster

Hello , I am the proud owner of a year old chris craft corsair 33 in the UK , I think its one of 3 here . I want to fit a bow thruster but am struggling to find any information or help in doing this . My boatyard are not very confidant in chopping my beautiful boat about without some advice . I hope there is someone out there who can help me . Chris Craft have pretty much been of no help . I know there have been some fitted in the states , so if anyone could put me in touch with an owner who has or a yard who has I would be most greatful

Regards from the UK

Janus

If it were me, I would practice my docking maneuvers and invest in some quality fenders and forego the bow thruster and glass work...but that's just me.

If you have to add one, I'd probably do one of these: http://www.sideshift.com/products/Selection_Chart.htm

so you don't have to put a huge hole in the hull and glass the whole tube in.

But, I'm with everyone else... practice with your boat, it should be easy to dock with twin engines.
