I saw a model Calmac ferry with both fitted some time ago at a show up in irvine and it was an amazing model to watch in operation.
truely a show stopper with it;s manouverability.
I would say go for it, even if only for the fun factor of watching your apponents faces at steering regattas. :D {-) O0

My Gry Maritha has a stern thruster in it.

If you want one, go for it and let the rivet counters take a running jump!!
