The thruster comes from a company named Willdo in Holland, its a powerfull pump for it size and its a 80mm hoose for intake and 55mm for blow and gives a pressure of approx 50bars, never tried it before so will se if it works, the company name says it will do (very bad one)

Yes thats the one - it's the same bloke who started Vetus. You can have outlets all over the boat and they need much smaller holes than normal thrusters.

Correct, thats the guy who started Vetus.
Will be very interesting to se how it works, as i understod he started with this thruster during his time at Vetus but when he sold it they didnt want to continue develop the thruster so he keept it and continued him self to develop the thruster and it has been lots of changes since then.

Its stearable and trimable drives.
We will put the boat into the water before we fit the thruster, the in will be in botttom transom and out approx 3-3,5m from bow depending on how the boat lays in water.
What do you mean with all power thrue the props, the thruster is like a bow thruster so the manouverability gets better in slow speeds when you are in the harbours etc.
