GETTING TO KNOW Hydro-Ventures 5 THingS yOU SHOULD knOw ABOUT HOUSEBOAT THRUSTERS Bob Sainte of Hydro-Ventures 1. FIND A WAY TO IMPROVE I started building houseboat thrusters in response to a request from an employee of one of the major manufacturers. They were building their own thruster system, and wanted a better pump and reservoir system than what they were currently using. I started out with performance specifications and translated them into the product that I sell today. 2. THE TARGET CUSTOMER Houseboaters who have a boat wider than 15 feet and longer than 60 feet should consider having thrusters. Thrusters give the captain the ability to move the bow and the stern laterally without having to be in motion. When docking, with bow and stern thrusters you can posi- tion the boat relative to the center of the slip, and then go forwards, while holding the boat against the wind or current. The confidence factor allows you to remain calm and focus on what you are doing. 3.ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS Improving the quality of other people's lives has always been important to me. My father was a pharmacist in a town of 1250 people. He would open the drug store at 2:00 in the morning to fill a prescription for a family with a sick child, and never worried about getting his money. He instilled in me a value that has car- ried forward with me through my entire life. It is important to me that my customers are satisfied and supported as they carry forward. 4. WORST-CASE SCENARIO The worst houseboat mishap I have ever seen involved one boat in motion and four at rest. The boat in motion collided with the other four one at a time, and did about $20,000 in damage to the four boats. One of the boats was hit so hard it knocked the slide off the back and it went to the bottom of the lake. 5. DIFFICULTY LEVEL: MINIMAL Adapting to using your thrusters is a fairly intuitive process. Having bow and stern thrust- ers allows you to adjust the alignment of the boat on the fly, making it simple to stay on a straight path while docking. The joysticks are set up so that you move the stick in the direction that you want the boat to move. Most people become proficient with using their thrusters in just a few days.

Enjoy wireless control of your houseboat
Thrusters Fit Older or Newer BoatsSo whether you own a newer or older houseboat, you deserve to have "total control of your boat". Boating is a fun activity and a thruster should be part of your vessels equipment list. Every boat should have them installed as "standard equipment".
Thruster Videos are Worth 2000 WordsThere's an excellent thruster videoshowing the features, performance, and the ease of docking using these thrusters. So see for yourself how it easily can totally change your boating control and confidence.
Easy to Install, DIY installationThe beauty of these thrusters is that the installation can be done by you, a handy DIY person, or they can easily be installed by your local marine repair shop.
No Need to Haul-Out the BoatOne great advantage for installation is that there's no haul-out required, the houseboat doesn't even have to be removed from the water, therefore further reducing installation costs.
Wireless Bow Stern ThrustersAs a bonus, there's a wireless joystick so that you can access the thruster power from your upper helm flybridge location. Surely that will be a great benefit and really impress your dock neighbours. :)
