Well discussion over, $600 for a new Vetus 4HP pretty well sealed the deal.

Wow,for sure at that price you can't go wrong. I will be interested to see where it goes and how the installation works out.

Check out RJ blog for how to install the tube;

My tube will be 5.5 ins diameter. I have seen a few Whitby installs so it should be do-able.

I say 'nice' AND 'need to have' lol.

I have the same thruster. Totally reliable and pushes 22000 lbs around nicely. Vetus makes a replacement prop that vastly decreases turbulence. And noise. Defender sells it and the performance boost is worth the dough.
