      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

1999 1950 Tyee Mag I/O

Recommended Posts

What do you think? Buddy wants to buy one. We looked at it tonight, 2nd owner wants 18K give take for it. It has the standard dock rash with a few dents. Comes with newer 70 lb thrust Minn Kota, Lowrance 111CHD and another Eagle GPS combo up front. Trailer looks like a well worn Shorelander dual axle. Carpet is probably in about 60% of its shape. Comes with 99 15hp kicker. Seats are in great shape for a 99.

This will be his first boat, so I am excited for him to get it, however was wanting the experts (you) opinions of what you would expect to pay. His wife is excited, but apprehensive, naturally.

What is everyone's opinions on the I/O? Never owned one so I don't have a lot of input. It is a consignment at a dealership. Dealership offered to take family out for a test spin on the mighty Mo.

I know this isn't enough info to go on, but I would personally rate the "looks" of the boat at about a 7.0 out of 10.

My old man just picked up a 2001 1950 tyee magnum with ITS and a 15 hp 4 stroke kicker. Full top and snap on cover Lowrance graph. Excellent shape with very little scratches and very low hours on the motors for $16500. I might say it is a bit high priced??

It does seem like a bit much for that rig... that said though, I do think shmick_shmacky's dad got a pretty good deal on his rig.

Have you / has he done much comparison shopping? I'd look into that a little bit before you / he settles on a price.

Based off the description I would also say 18 sounds a tad high for that boat. Hard to tell without a some pics.

As a side note, the larger windshield lunds are a great all around family boat..very comfortable, IMO. Between a couple friends, family and myself we own five of them. (17 Fisherman, 18 Fisherman, 1950 Tyee Mag, 20 Fisherman, 20 Fisherman)

Good times!!

I agree. He (we) are looking at comparables and it seems high considering the shape it is in. If it was a little cleaner, I would have him jump on it.

I have a 1996 1850 Tyee I/O and have been happy with it. It's easy on the gas, has plenty of power. The engine has been reliable with only a fuel pump issue that was fixed under warranty. The asking price might be high. You could offer less and wait and see. There are lots of boats for sale.

    • Rigid hitch and reflectors on the back of the house and you should be good to go.
    • It wouldn't be any different than pulling a cat cutter or something similar...
    • I have heard as far on trailers every year the lugs should be removed and greased with some sort of oil or anti seize to prevent rust or seizeing of lugs. This could be the issue or there just torqued on good.
    • Hey guys, I have many small lakes within a few miles of home and I’m right on the groomed trail and was always curious if it’s leagal to tow my flip over/ large otter sled behind my snowmobile on the trails to the lakes. I’ve looked around and can’t find an awsner I could have swore years ago it was ok as long as it was towed wth some sort of a solid tow hitch which I have on both. Do does anyone know it this is legal or not planning on trying out a small lake this weekend and would rather ride there then drive.
    • Might want to have a talk with that tire shop, and have them properly reinstall all the other lug nuts before you have to. Plus, if any break they can fix them now. If any brake pulsation occurred after overtightening, that's one more thing to talk about. I also worry about stress factors on the studs. Once a bolt is stretched, it's done. About the only way to check for that is to get an OE stud and compare lengths. Cheater bar force likely means they were at least 3-4 times overtightened, maybe more. But, if you have uncapped nuts on an uncapped wheel allowing corrosion, it's on you.   Torque sticks are better than nothing but really should only be used to snug them down, then finish with a torque wrench.
    •   They should use a Torque stick when putting them on, but none do. Does she have the craapy lugs with the "Tin foil" cap over the nut? I love how those round off. I replaced all the Tin foil lug nuts on my SUV and snowmobile trailer with solid SS lug nuts. They cost more but, I hope to not be sitting half in half out of a snow cover ditch in the middle of no where trying to get striped lugs off!
    • Aluminum or steel wheel?
    • Nice of the Blues to go 4-5-1 in their last ten, they only have 1 point on us but we have two games in game. 
    • It's a red shrimp. Found one in St. Louis river. International shipping hauls this dump over here and then they harass the citizens about spreading it and cleaning it up.
