      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 .

Prop/Pitch/Etc?

Recommended Posts

Just posted in the used items that I'm looking for a prop for my 1996 75 Merc. I'm looking for something that will give me a higher speed over long distances, not necessarily something that will give a quick hole shot. Any suggestions on pitch, etc?

Thanks!

MJ

Yes we need your WOT rpms. 4 stroke or Classic? Also whats the OEM part number and size and pitch of the prop you have now. Are you looking for aluminum or stainless steel?

MJ,

We're going to need some more info... like what pitch prop are you running now, and what are you getting for RPM at WOT? Also, since you're looking for more speed than holeshot, how many people and how much gear do you run with?

It currently has a 3 blade stainless steel 16 pitch prop on it, but it's been repaired a couple of times and is banged up pretty good already. I would consider another stainless to have. I looked at the number last night on the prop, thought about writing it down, but didn't. I'm at work right now, then off to Big Stone. I'll have to get it Sunday night or Monday sometime. I'll try to include more details later.

Typically I have two batteries, maximum of 26 gallons of fuel, 1 or 2 other people with me, lots of tackle and rods, two anchors.

The Mercury web site has a page that allows you to plug in the boat and motor you have and the type of performance you are looking for in your rig. It will give you one or more choices. I did it for my boat and went to the dealer, and they agreed with what I had found on that site. Mercurymarine.com
