Bow Thruster – AF Theriault & Son

Daily Image - 10 March 2012 - Bow Thruster - AF Theriault & Son

Bow thrusters give ship’s captains much greater control over their vessels when manoeuvring in tight quarters, often eliminating the need for a tug. They are installed in tubes, running right through the bow of a ship from one side to another, and when activated push the bow one way or another. This large thruster is over four feet in diameter and is installed in a large, off-shore fishing vessel, currently nearing completion of a refit on the stocks at AF Theriault & Son in Meteghan River, Digby County, Nova Scotia.
