Catalina 350 bow thruster

Jun 7, 2004
Beneteau Oceania 45 Charleston
Recently moved boat to charleston. Sometimes difficult maneuvering in and out of slip. Considering adding bow thruster. Anyone have experience with this on this size boat? Is v-berth water tank in the way? What brand and size? Expected cost? Any help appreciated

Cataina 400 MK II Santa Cruz
I have a Vetus bowthruster on my 40 foot boat. It works really well, and is hooked up to my house bank (2 4D batteries). The thing is, that I almost never use it. The only time is when I'm in really close quarters with wind pressure. The rest of the time proper handling takes care of my needs.
