Bow Thruster – Part 5 – First Fitting

This is where I started to see the project take shape.  We collected some wood that the yacht club used to place under the keels of boats on jack stands.  We created our stand to hold the thruster and I went inside to place the washer and nut to hold it on.

When I snugged up the nut to pull up the thruster we used the technique which eXturn has on their web site and mark the spots where you drill your two other holes.    It worked like a charm.
