      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 .

Had a buddy pull the boat onto the trailer last night. He left the motor on and didn't realize for about 20-30 seconds as I pulled up the launch ramp to parking lot. Problems/Worries?????

Easily done. Being in a hurry to get off the ramp, weather coming in, typical boat ramp "excitement", combined with todays 4 strokes that you barely hear, it's easily done. I left my Suzuki 140 FS running for longer than I care to admit (less than a minute, longer than 15 seconds) one of my first times out with it. No alarms at the time, or problems afterwards. Very easily done.

I have done this with my T8 kicker a couple of times...get myself into trouble when I start the big motor and let it warm up after a long trolling run and letting the T8 cool off a bit. Problem is the little guy is so quiet that I raise it up out of the water without shutting it off first. Once out of the water you can hear it...so far, knock on wood, no harm.

As long as you just pulled it out of the water its fine, there is enough water still bouncing around in there to lubricate and cool the impeller. If the motor has been sitting for a while and you start it up dry you can burn that impeller up real quick.

My 135 opti actually has water running out of the telltail for about 30 to 60 seconds after I shut the motor down so 15 seconds or so wouldn't hurt it.
