Mine was built in 14 owned for 3 years. Neighbors was a 10 owned for at least 5 years. This is not my inability to handle a vessel. This is problems that arise when u try to control a vessel from only its stern. Simple mechanical advantage. There needs to be significantly more thrust applied to turn the vessel when using pods. Basic free body diagram. That additional thrust makes pulling close to seawalls more difficult as you get reactionary forces. Bow and stern thruster will pull a vessel off a wall faster and easier. Maneuvering in shallow waters will cause sea strainers to clog and the main drive seal to leak. This is not just me complaining, these are well documented issues. To many people were sold on these "fantastic " technologies. They are not as promised. Boat was kept in sfl. So lots of choices for service. None were good.
