      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 .

Bent Shaft

Recommended Posts

I managed to bend the prop shaft on my 4yr old Minnkota Maxum 70lbs Uni Sonar. I was wondering does anyone know a place I could take this for repair in the south west metro?

Thanks in advance

Dumb question, but are you sure it's the shaft that's bent and not the cross pin that holds the prop in place. I know I have bent that cross pin before and the prop will wobble, but the shaft was still good. New pins are a few bucks.

The shaft is kittywampus. Doesn't spin straight. Stupid waves pounded it into some algae cover boulders a few times before I grabbed the rope and pulled it up. Dumb mistake on my part. Thought it was just a clump of algae, guess not.

I realize you're looking for something in the Metro area, but you are SOOO close to Mankato, why not just take it into MinnKota? They'll probably replace the armature (prop shaft) for you and generally check the motor over while you wait. They did my repairs while I waited a few years back, and I'm only 30 miles away from them! Phred52

Hmm - if they are open on Sat I may take a road trip. Thanks Phred52. OK so nothing in the SW metro. Any where in the metro? I thought there was a place in Coon Rapids close to Hwy 10 that did repairs. Action's fishing in Anoka fixes t-motors. I'll start to google now.

The motor clinic (aka Vexilar in Bloomington) fixes these. I just called them and they are 12 mins away and quoted me $120 for parts + labor. I thought it would be a bit more than that.
