      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 .

Props

Recommended Posts

I bought a used Princecraft 178 SF Special Edition, with a 135 Ficht Ram Evinrude, it came with a Solas 3X14.8X19 aluminum prop on it. At full throttle with just me in the boat it maxes out at 45 MPH but the RPM's are only getting to 5000 RPM, this is a V6 motor, but I thought i'd get more RPM than this, I've looked around the internet and can't find anything about the original prop pitch that came with this boat. Does anyone think a 19 pitch is to much? Or is 5000 RPM about right? I would like to get a Stainless prop for this boat but I'm not rich and I don't want to buy the wrong one. Any info would be much appreciated. Even just point me towards a store in the north metro wher I could get this info. Thanks.

Mark's prop shop in Stacy loaned me props to find the right one for my set up. It took 3 props to get to the one that worked the best for me. He sells new and used props.

Do you usually run solo or with other people in the boat?  Moving down to a 17 pitch should put you at around 5500 in similar conditions and solo, which should give you a couple more MPH if that is what you are looking for.

@ BartmanMN Mostly with at least one other person, but I do have a family of four and sometimes were all in the boat.
