      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 .

Hey guys just was wondering if those 4hp or 6hp engines can be linked to a bigger outboard? I am looking at purchasing a 1860 G3 with a F90 jet motor and would like to run a new 4 or 6 hp engine using the sterring wheel. I know you can do this with T8 or 9.9hp kickers but unsure about the smaller motor

BrandonN- sorry I can't help you with your original question but I just thought I'd give you some info on what you're trying to do with the kicker. As I'm sure you know the boat you mentioned has a very high transom for the jet- probably too high to mount a long shaft kicker directly (although I don't know for sure without measuring. That and the 'flat' portion of the transom the 90 is mounted on isn't all the way across so I'm not sure you'd have the clearance. There's barely enough room to put a transom trolling motor back there. I would think you would have to have a kicker mount bolted on that would raise and lower the kicker motor. This would then hang off a hunk of weight off the back and to the side probably throwing the boat's balance off. You do NOT want any more weight back there than there already is with that motor I know that....because I have one.

I was thinking about doing a patherlift some how off the back. The motor weight is 60lbs the weight of the lift is 40 ish so 100 lbs might be a bit heavy...... I have a 1648 jon right now and use a older 4hpwomen and it doesn't seem to heavy for that

Well 100 lbs total for the motor and lift is certainly less than I was thinking. It will be a factor however a small one hopefully. I would think it will make you tilt a little in that direction (unless you counter balance with something of course) and make you go on step a hair slower and your back end will squat a little faster when shutting down the power. You might want to get a 'whale tail' to help with that. Well worth the $100 or so to help with those two factors, and even more importantly helps you stay on plane at slower speeds so you can focus on reading water in tough spots.
