I used the thruster for the first time yesterday (other than just playing around). I had to pull into a canal do a 180 and then dock in front of two boats rafted at the dock which made it even tighter. The thruster worked great and made the job easy. The rudder modification was also a big success. It was well worth the $900 as the boat handles fantastic now. I would recommend it to any one with a single screw TT.

I notice that later in the season my keel fills with water and maybe its my imagination but the boat seems more stable. Should I keep this filled with water ? Will bleach(to prevent alge) damage the glass?
