Self-Install of Stern Thruster on a Nordic Tug 37

The self-install of a stern thruster is now very manageable thanks to the latest self–contained pod thruster designs and technologies that do not require installation of a thruster tunnel into the hull. Warren Mann, owner of Celebration, NT 37-049, sent off his order for an EX Series stern thruster this spring (2018). Derek Tamargo of The Yacht Group was very helpful, quickly answering Warren's questions and making suggestions during the installation process. Derek has recently returned from meeting with the Nordic Tug factory and reports the EX Series stern thrusters will be the factory recommendation in the future.

Warren has documented this project in great detail, including photos, in an Adobe PDF file. You can download the file by clicking on the image to the right.
