Lucky indeed. As I understand it, standard installations are insufficient for supporting the boat like that. Dashew wanted to have the capacity to do it on his FPB, but it required additional work to facilitate it.

was totally not made for that and unattended, but that made it...

I visit the fin shop from TRAC the fin are really super strong made, and I can tell you I was very impress by the way they build all the stabiliser and thruster they all most machine all part on site, except casting they made form company in California they know well and can control quality all the rest they machined on place...
That a amassing how they build all part they totally crazy to doing that way!!!
they built they own nut and shim washer.
Totally mad factory and I can tell you thruster are unbreakable.

Guys you can go for this brand ...

Hugues
