One of the biggest challenges a captain faces is controlling their vessel at slow or no speed when conditions are not ideal. Docking and maneuvering when the wind is howling or the current is pushing you in the opposite direction you need to go can be nerve-racking and potentially unsafe. A simple solution to gain more control is to install a bow and/or a stern thruster. Using a thruster in tandem with throttle controls will allow the captain to fight off wind and current forces and maintain position or direct the vessel in the proper direction. This is even more important for sail boats and other single-engine vessels.
