On a thruster, the last thing you need to worry about is finding a replacement fuse and wrenches to swap it out, since most likely, it failed when you are bow to a 2 million megayacht and were using the thruster to navigate around the big boat. So, a breaker, that can be reset fairly quickly is not a terrible idea.
