      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 .

worscase you fried your engine best case is that you get a good deal on a boat motor.. i would bet that one of the connecting rods are sticking out of the crankcase.. does it turn over?? if it does freely, breathe a sign of relief.. if it doent trun at all or turns slowly and grinds start looking for a new motor.. funny it doesnt have a low level oil light er something. take the spark plugs out and put oil in those holes.. im thinking if it was out of oil its done for.. did it bog or just go ping and quit?

it bogged and quit....was a pop nothing and no it wont turn over at all so having it fixed is not an option here..not that i have money laying around..If i got repaired cost estimate and how long will it be in shop? it has always had low warning beep for oil just not this time and its going to cost me dearly

so guys i looked online and found powerheads for my motor and looks like 3100 gets me powerhead and that includes shipping and all..now when the powerhead arrives at my marine shop how much time and trouble is it to swap out the powerheads and what is the estimate to do this above and beyond the 3100 for the new powerhead....

i believe they are rebuilt because they require that the old core be sent back for a 600 credit..new motor would run probably im guessing 7000-10000 but not sure need to call a few repair shops monday to find out my options.. if anybody has any good options for me or knows somebody that can do the work please let me know live in st. cloud..and really would like my boat in 2-3 weeks as i have a tournement that i paid for and dont want to lose my money
