      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 .

Motor question

Recommended Posts

Out on the lake yesterday afternoon and when we were leaving to go to another spot, I could not get the boat over 7 mph. When I pushed the throttle forward to go faster than that, the motor acted as if it was slipping and supplied no power to the prop. I could go slow, but nothing more than that. Glad I wasn't on Mille Lacs! It had acted like this before, but just when we were going into turns. Now it's all the time.

Dumb question of the day: Do boat motors have clutches? It's a 1990 Johnson 60.

It could be one of the two items presented above...

I'd take a white paint stick / marker, take the prop nut and washer off, and draw a line from the Splined hub on the prop to the outside of the diameter of the prop (after the rubber hub), run it and see if everything is still lined up.

I'd say spun hub. If the clutch dog was bad, when it pops out of gear at a rate of speed, it'll feel like you hit the brakes as you fly forward. In your case it only happend on turns and then would grab and continue to go. Thats a spun hub.
