With ref to bow thrusters. I did a year 3/mate Asialiner/Asiafrieihter can rember having to phone down engine room when about to operate thrusters on a river passage. Also a few years later on another vessel - Broompark I think - I was talking to the Savanah pilot about this and he said that after the engine refurbishment they were not as good as manouovering round the river's bends as before.
