Can anyone help.

I bought my 470 at the beginning of September.  The bow thruster stopped working and on looking at the bow thruster the boat has been fitted with a 24 volt bowthruster when she is a 12 volt boat. Somebody has linked two 12 volt batteries to give the 24 volt required to run the bow thruster but there is no means of charging the 24 volt battery.

Jackie,
you must have surely a device charging the 24 Volt bank. Batteries have a tendency ( you can not beat chemical physics ) loosing their charge if they are not topped up regularly.
Maybe the charging cables are not connected directly at the battery, so look for "strange" cables (and fuse ) at the thruster.
What is the current voltage level measured directly at the thruster batt bank ? Cheap batt chargers have a tendency to fail or somebody might have blown a fuse. Did it work when you took the boat over a month ago?
