Asking for someone else.  Does anyone know any hire boats that have bow thrusters?

When we ascended the Tinsley flight a lock keeper told us that a Yorkshire bow thruster was "The missus with a pole. Two speeds, push, and push harder"

I believe quite a few of the more modern boats in the Wyvern Shipping Company fleet have them.

Many years ago (14 to be exact) we hired a boat from Beacon Park Boats on the Mon & Brec that had Bow Thrusters
