    After about 10 seconds of running the 6 inch bow thruster, it slow to about half speed.

    Start with the basics first: Check all connections and condition of wires. The current may be causing something to heat up and increase the resistance in the circuit.

    Is it on a separate battery? I had the same issue, the separate battery for the bow thruster was dead. New battery fixed my issue
