    Laid up after a back surgery so nothing but time to kill. Non-stop internet.... Noticed a bow thruster is an option in the other world areas but not the US. Wonder what the thinking is since all the work is done already so would be an easy add here.

    I think the design and manufacturing is mostly separate outside the US. I noticed there is a 290 sundancer available in Europe that has a layout like the new 320, but It’s not available here.

    I posted a thread about it, and based on the comments, I see why. Nobody seemed to like it but me. So the market is different here.

    Personally, with our 27 I only wished for a bow thruster once or twice in heavy winds. I assume it will be the same in the new 29.

    Them Limeys need it. Can’t dock a boat properly. They don’t get this website in Europe, do they? (looks around cautiously).
