      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 .

Anything to be concerned about?

My boat had been sitting for about a month in a garage and I just got done pulling it home from 215 miles away and a couple days later I see this - oil mixed with water.

Nope. That's the tail end of the exhaust gasses and water dripping out the thru-the-hub exhaust. That's why I always put a piece of cardboard under mine after a trip to the lake.

And the oil is from?

If I were you I would pop the lower unit drain plug and see if you get milk out.  That looks like a lower unit seal leak to me. :(

My boat does that pretty much all the time.  And the lower unit is tight as a drum, no milk.  I don't normally see it unless I trim the motor down and let it drain out though.

If it is something that youve never seen before and just started, I would be more worried.

When I've had a bad seal, it's a drip drip drip drip thing.  Might be slow, but it will go on for days.

Thanks for the advice. I took out the drain plug and although it's not the color of milk, it is the consistency of milk but is a brownish yellow. 

Now that I did some research, I guess a light golden brown is normal. It did drip about 1/2 dozen drops overnight, which is why I checked it. I guess it's nothing to be too concerned with I guess. Thanks for all the replies.
