Charlie van der Veer:
The design of a Rapsody 29 OC is similar to a 1932 Petterson. Charlie van der Veer is the owner of this fine massive 2000 mahogany Rapsody. He leaves no doubt: "Scratches on mahogany, you don't want that. Such a scratch gets dark. If it gets lighter you can darken it, but the other way around doesn't work. That's why in 2008 I had Karst Braaksma from Karyvo in Sneek, the Netherlands, install the Jet Thruster's predecessor as an addition to the existing bow thruster. A good system, in principle, but the complicated electronics were sensitive to interference and in 2012 the valve turned out to be completely stuck. Karst then rebuilt the valve and control system to the level of the current Jet Thruster, and now it all works to my full satisfaction. I chose the Jet Thruster because the system works so silently. This is a major advantage compared to the propeller. The control system with two joy sticks on the dashboard make the system very easy to control, also in combination with the bow thruster. Moving sideways or rotating around the axis in a narrow channel – you can do it all. Noisy in front and silent in the back, but at least no scratches!"

Marco: Ventura 8.5

Marco is the owner-manager of Ventura B.V., a Dutch manufacturer, located in Geertruidenberg, of handcrafted wooden speed boats with a beautiful interplay of lines evoking nostalgic memories. But anyone who looks twice will see that Venturas have a timeless design. A stylish speed boat, always equipped with a powerful engine. Marco himself has installed a JT-30 in the bow of a Ventura 8.5, which stands for 8.5 metres in length: "The installation was fairly easily done. With the right holesaw for the nozzles and an epoxy treatment it is simple to make it watertight. It is, however, useful to have someone help you, I noticed. I placed the pump in the stern, because I had room there. I have to admit, the Jet Thruster is a unique product. Compared to a bow thruster the Jet Thruster makes hardly any sound at all, and the system is easily and intuitively controlled with the joy stick. It is just a matter of pushing the stick in the direction you want to move. All things considered I love the system. It is extremely useful in the harbour, especially when you want to moor at a narrow berth. Because the Ventura is a luxuriously equipped speed boat, I plan on installing a Jet Thruster in all new vessels we make – a unique system for a unique speed boat."
