Sorry Mcgherkin. The specs say two bow tunnel thrusters. The GA plans even show two tunnel thrusters, seems the chinese yard may have decided to save some cash {-)

Guys.....  >>:-( some may have been a little premature in assuming that a second [AFT] thruster  :o was missing

From the sectional image posted [thanks Umi].......we see the conventional FWD thruster being indicated as powered by an electric motor

However just AFT of this we see a representation of a diesel engine through a gearbox to a thruster.....but it appears to be inclined downwards  %%

More than meets the eye I would suspect...as this appears to be an Azimuth rotational thruster  O0 

Sceptics the lot of you......nothing wrong with Fried Rice...... :-)) ..........Derek

I've just checked all my downloaded plans, I have 3 sets of line drawing, two show it with the azimuth pod and one that I have been taking measurements from show it with the tunnel thruster. In all other aspects these plans are exactly the same!

Sorry Ned, just back from the local bar and a warming brew!

All three plans I have carry the exact same info in the bottom right corner as per the image, so something is amiss.... owever I am not about to change my current build because of plans {-)
