Adaptor Installation

Installation of an EXTURN thruster is quick and easy. Simply drill a 50 mm diameter hole through the hull for the S/S through-hull fitting (attached to the thruster) which also feeds the required wiring. This through hull fitting is supplied with a watertight seal which eliminates the need of additional fiberglass work. Also supplied as part of the installation kit are S/S rods to be bolted through two 18 mm pre drilled holes. This also includes watertight seals and provides ultimate security and rigidity of your EXTURN thruster installation.

Mounting Bolts (Boat Interior)
