    Sorry to highjack this thread, but have you ever installed a stern thruster on a single engine Nimbus 320, if so, which model did you fit?

    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.
    I bet the Sidepower dual control would operate the Quick forward thruster, the manuals show simple switching of +12/24V in the joystick control panel. I'm sure an engineer could figure it out with volt meter and some cable splicing.

    No i haven't.

    An SE 40 would do though. Sidepower that is. Largest you can get now in a 125mm tunnel.
    If there is space you could fit an SE60. Quite a bit more ££. But I suppose you will never think "i wish I had a smaller thruster. "

    Well I wouldn't get into that sort of messing around. Fine on your own boat, but when installing professionally plug and play is the only way. Far too many variables that eat time that a customer would never want to pay for. And if it goes wrong more lost time and warrantee arguments. And the customer comes to me. No thanks!

    Fair enough!

    I tried accessing the quick website to see if they do stern kits, got a website domain expired error. Their IT chap or webby needs a kick.

    Hi Anders,
    It was done in Australia but any SS fabricator would be able to do it. It cost me $ 160.00.
    All that needs to be done is put a sliding bevel over the horizontal fibreglass seat and down to where the pivot is, this the angle of both mitred cogs.
    Regards Scott.

    Thanks Scott, I'm going blind...didn't spot you're based in Australia. I'm going to visit boat again at dealers next month, hope they'll allow seat back to be removed so I can judge if this mod will suffice.

    Question to all, do you have life rafts? If yes was it a valise? 4 man or 6 man?

    I've been investigating TV installation, I made a mock up to scale of Kogan 24" TV, just about fits in forward cabin. I've e-mailed Kogan to confirm if the TV can handle charging voltage and any voltage spikes you'd expect on a 12V system.
