    Why You May Need an Ignition Protected Bow Thruster:
    It is not safe to install a conventional electric bow thruster in the engine room, or compartment containing fuel tanks, of a gasoline powered boat because gasoline fumes may be ignited by internal sparking in the thruster's motor. To allow safe installation under these conditions, VETUS has developed ignition protected bow thrusters which include sealed motor housings meeting the ISO 8846 Marine "ignition protection" standard.
