      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 .

Tachometer ?

Recommended Posts

The Tach on my pontoon is going goofy. It seems to work ok when just idling, but goes crazy with higher rpms. It goes up a little bit then just seems to get stuck there. It also has rotated counter clock wise and came up on the other side. Any one have any ideas?? Is it the tach itself or other problem? I am waiting for the dial to start spinning and pop out with some springs and stuff, like in the cartoons!!

Check behind the tachometer. Check the wire connections and tighten any loose nuts. These connections can loosen up over time and cause the tach to read erroneously. It's not the only cause, but it's something that you can do yourself to save yourself a couple of bucks.

Good Luck!

The boat and motor are both 2003. The motor is a Yamaha 4-stroke. I will clean all the conections and see what happens. Thank you for the comments.

Go ahead and try all that first, but I'd be willing to bet the tach is bad. That would be funny if it popped out like a cartoon, I just pictured that! BOINGGGGGG!!!!
