Vetus electric bow thrusters have a drive
pin located behind the propeller, which is designed
to fracture if the propeller becomes
jammed by debris, thus protecting the gearbox
Similarly, some bow thrusters also have a shear pin located under the motor, which enables the pin to be changed without having to lift the boat out of the water.
We are able to supply drive pins and shear pins for all Vetus bow thrusters: if you are unsure which you require, please contact us.
