With a yacht of Laroobaa's size manoeuvring in the tight quarters of marinas in the Med, was always a challenge without bowthruster. Eventually I decided to install one. It has to be powerfull, because you need it the most, when the wind blows strong. We did go for the 20 hp version, which is the strongest for a 250 mm propeller. It also needs a dedicated battery installed in the bow cabine and an additional alternator.
We also decided to transform the midship port cabine into a workshop. Always something is broken and has to be fixed and I need a dedicated working area. This will also give us more storage room.
The shipyard did sent us some pictures of the progress.
