      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 .

NEW B ..... ?

Recommended Posts

My unkle just gave me a 14' lund with a 81 johnson 25 horse on it .... I have been out 5 times fishing with it. The last 2 times I have had problems keeping it running when the motor warms up. I know almost nothing about boat motors .... but it seems that the motor is getting way to hot .. lots of steam coming out of it and water is running out of the top end of the motor when running. Seeping from the cover. So today I was crossing the lake and all of a sudden the motor burped and instantly quit and the boat glided to a stop. I couldnt get it back to nuetral for abou a minute or two. After it cooled down it shifted back to N and started after a few pulls. So I putted back to the launch but the motor still died if I didnt give it enough throttle. Again I am a total new b to boat motors ...... any help would be greatly appreciated!

Can you show us approximately where the water is coming from. It sounds as though its overheating to the point where it locks up. I would not run it anymore until you find the reason why. Most likely the water pump is shot.
