      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Lower Unit Trouble....

Recommended Posts

Long story short I smacked up my lower unit on my 99' Evinrude 70 hp 4 stroke EFI and need a new one. Thankfully I have insurance and they are paying all minues the $250 deductible. Bad News is, the shop called and said all the lower units are out of stock until the 21st so realisticly it won't get done probably until the end of July and I got a few trips planned that I was going to take the boat.

My question is do any of you know of any shops that may have this lower unit in stock?

Thanks for any help!

It's worth a call to both places, (the other one being Outboard Recyclers or Twin Cities Outboard), but they only carry used parts, and on a motor this new (relatively speaking) it may be difficult to find a used one.

Also, very few dealers, if any, are going to have a brand new lower unit in the parts department waiting for someone to buy it... it's a pretty expensive for them to stock.
