Thanks Ed for all your help. Your replacement of our bow thruster in Stuart was a life saver. It was great to know while traveling the east coast of Florida we could call a company so responsive to the needs of someone stranded in the middle of a vacation. We made it back to Tampa and have enjoyed having the new bow thruster. It works great and much stronger than the last one! I only wish you had a service center on the west coast of Florida!!
