      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 .

just got boat from storage and cleaned dust off. I did'nt notice any oil on lower unit but has been sitting in my garage for 3 days now and discovered oil is leaking from prop area. Removed prop and cleaned of oil and there is a small area of oil again one day later. Is the seal leaking or is that something that happens until that seal gets hot again. I drained lower unit and put in new oil before i stored it. motor is 82 evinrude. any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

I would say that a seal went bad over the winter. Call your local dealer before the fishing season heats up! See what they have to say. I have never seen oil drip from the lower unit with the motor out of the water.

Usually I notice water in the lower unit oil when I drain it, and then it is obvious that the seals leak. Did you ever notice water in the oil when you drained it last fall?

If you had your engine fogged it could be oil comming out of the exhaust. the best way to be sure your seals are not leaking is to pressure test it, you might be able to borrow a pressure gauge from your local marine mechanic, just screw it in one of the plugs on the lower unit pump it up and let it sit for a few minutes and see if the needle on the gauge goes down. Good luck
