How it works
The unit is comprised of a manifold that houses the extension mechanism and arms. The movement of a conical nut inside the mechanism initiates extension of the arms in order to achieve a firm grip between the Bow Thruster Protection and the surface of the bow thruster tunnel.
Manufactured from durable, waterproof materials common in today’s marine equipment practice.
While maneuvering vessels in tight quarters such as marinas, engaged unprotected bow thruster propellers often draw in floating ropes causing instant damage and malfunction.
Bow thruster emergency repair and periodical servicing operations require access to its propeller. The Bow Thruster Protection allows unlimited number of installations without any damage to the vessel’s hull, unlike standard grill protection mounted with screws.
