    Hi Elessar,

    Thanks for the informative photos, you have done an excellent professional job! I now know so much more about the installation. Was the thruster sidepower and what was the transom thickness
    Regards Scott

    No i fitted max power thrusters in a side power tunnel. Max power tunnel is too big.
    Max power no longer available. Anyone know what they fit at the bow on the new ones?

Then you will get a good feel of the helm when you can stretch out properly. The flybridge is well worth having over the non flybridge version
    Yep worth asking them to do that before I buy, but I'd probably accept tight legroom...something you get used too with long legs.

    definitely not the same.

    max power did a twin prop 45kg f in a 125mm tunnel, sidepower does a 40kgf single prop.

    the 40kg f in this range is in a 150mm tunnel. Can't possibly see that fitting as it's tight as it is.

    So sidepower it is, and then you have issues with control interfaces or accept non matching joy sticks. That's why I liked maxpower, could fit a double joystick. 2 singles on the fly will look awful dues to lack of space.
