A.1 Outboard Drive Assembly:
The outboard drive assembly includes the steering motor, drive and stem
rotation mechanisms, outboard stem, propeller hydraulic motor, propeller,
nozzle and outboard tilt mechanisms. The outboard drive assembly is a
totally sealed, self-contained unit with convenient means provided for
checking, draining and filling of lubricants. Routine servicing of the outdrive
does not require disassembly of the unit. The thruster is completely
marinized and suitable for marine service.

Pivot Points:
Pivot points shall be incorporated in the outboard drive to allow elevation of
the stem for inspection or maintenance. Elevation (tilt) is accomplished
without disconnecting the outboard drive from the main power source so that
operational control may be returned immediately and to permit maintenance
and repair without employing divers or drydocking the vessel.

Hydraulic Power Tilt System:
The thruster unit incorporates a hydraulic power tilt system capable of
elevating the outboard drive assembly through an arc of 90 degrees.
Hydraulic oil supply for the power tilt mechanism is supplied by the steering
and tilt hydraulic pump. Power tilt hydraulic cylinders and piston rods are
constructed of suitable alloys to prevent marine atmospheric corrosion.
Cylinder rods are chromium plated. The cylinders are of sufficient volume
and stroke to provide the full 90 degree arc of the outboard drive while
subjected to full propeller thrust loading.

Stem Length:
The outdrive assembly stem length will be matched to suit the vessel depth
and sponson deck elevation as to provide proper propeller submergence.
Maximum stem length is 35 feet. Longer lengths available at additional cost.

Propeller and Nozzle:

The thruster unit is equipped with a Kaplan accelerator series nickel-
aluminum bronze, four-blade, high-thrust, monoblock propeller contained in a

Kort 19A nozzle. The nominal diameter of the propeller is 81 inches and the
blade pitch and disk area ratio shall be such that maximum static bollard
thrust is achieved.

Steering System:
The thruster unit is equipped with electric over hydraulic steering, with a
hydraulic steering motor interconnected with a drive and rotation mechanism
powered by the steering and tilt hydraulic pump. The unit steers 360 degrees
continually, without stops, while subjected to full propeller thrust, facilitating
the vessel=s ability to maneuver nearly independent of wind and wave
excitation forces. The steering speed is three (3) RPM and is field

Propeller Hydraulic Motor:
Each thruster unit has a bi-directional, variable-speed piston motor directly
driving the propeller shaft. The hydraulic motor is installed inside the
fabricated steel lower outdrive housing. The propeller shaft is supported by
large, oil-lubricated taper roller bearings. The motor produces a rotative
speed of 279 RPM. Propeller speed can be infinitely controlled providing
excellent maneuvering ability and performance equivalent to controllable
pitch propellers. Pressure limiters and cross reliefs protect the hydraulic
transmission in the event of propeller blockage. The propeller can be stalled
at any time without causing damage to the transmission.

Service Life:
The propeller shaft oil-lubricated taper roller bearings have an L10 service life
in excess of 20,000 hours based on operation at full load.

Each thruster is provided with flanges and quick disconnect couplings for the
interconnecting hoses to the HPU. A NEMA-4X enclosure is provided for
electrical cable connection to transmit steering angle sensor data.

Feedbacks for thrust and azimuth output to the DPS computer are provided.

The outboard drive assembly is supported by a common steel mini-skid
arrangement, containing the hydraulic tilt cylinders and suitable for mounting
to the vessel=s deck or to sponson decks by bolt-down or welding. Mounting
on sponson decks will allow for 90 degree tilt of the thruster units parallel to
the side and centerline of the vessel.
