Thanks for the link, Willy.

Any time I am headed up the North Arm of the Fraser, I find it really hard not to pull to the north side, and just sit there and watch them move the booms or form them up. High entertainment content.

OS I love the dance they can do. The operation that was just down the river from me just closed. They had a couple of sidewinders and ya fun to watch. The Marina has a dozer "Mogul". Same boat but regular drive not a pod. Still fun but you have to be carefull around the fragile pleasure boats !!!!

Dave , I agree that sure looks like alot of fun for work on the water.

Prop in a cage.
Much the same as any power boat. Some just have nutral and foward since the pod drive spins 360 degrees.
