      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 .

What year Sea King?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to determine the year of a 15 horse Sea King short shaft for a friend of mine. It has some writing on it about being from Montgomery Ward's and built by Chrysler. Can anyone help me out with the year or how to determine it from the model number and serial number? Thanks!

try tim's outboard repair in hackensack
218-682-2331. give him the model and serial number. this is his slower time of the year, and he may have time to look for you.
the other way to go is twin city outboard in shakopee, down by canturbury. they have most every thing. i am lacking their number though. good luck, i love old outboards. i have a green and gold 5 hp scott atwater i've been using on my duck boat for years. new is nice, but i have a soft spot in my heart for them old beauties.
good luck, jigglestick.

Thanks jigglestick, I've done some more searching on the net and from what I've found the first part of the serial number gives me the year. First part serial No. 28X therefore an 82 model. Thanks again for the other number and contact, I'll add them to my "help" list! Man, I gotta get to URL, you guy's are having too much fun and I want in!! No, I haven't tried the weight on the nose thing yet but I've considered it! LOL
