    The St Adrian never had a bow thruster, but I had the tube fitted with the intention of fitting one latter. There were none on the market which would suit at the time.My previous boat would not come round when towing in a strong wind,as it turned out it was not necessary due to nozzle and bigger horse power. The light colour is zinc spraying which was also new in this country.

    i remember her being built fine, had a few visits to see her with the old man, who i can only surmise had been considering getting one built himself, don't know what changed his mind seeing as number three was built for one of his crew, archie "cubbie" galbraith's Aquarius, i remember her b etter than the arrow which was first built.
