    Last boat I had one of these, cheap to fit & never missed a beat in 8 years.

    Blimey - saw the price and just realised that the second hand stern thruster that we fitted to our Broom 41 was a bargain at £350!

    We fitted one to Piers' Play D'Eau about 10 years ago. Where he parks in Beaucette Marina, he would never get in or out of there without one. It was a SidePower.

    As an aside, on Leander G, a 75m superyacht, we fitted a radial jet stern thruster of 450hp. Going through the ship canals, turned the main engines off and just used the thruster.
