In my opinion, if one has a single engine boat and wants the benefits of a thruster, a bow thruster is going to buy you a lot more maneuverability value than a stern thruster.
*I whole heartily agree with the above statement but I have two friends that love their stern thrusters. In theory, however, if you are going to have only one thruster, the one on the bow will give you the most control in all situations.
