      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 .

Cruizin' with my Yammy...

Recommended Posts

With a planing hull you will find that almost all gas engines get the best fuel economy at somewhere between 3500-4000 rpms. also the harder you run it the shorter the the lifespan ( more heat, more vibration, more wear, etc.). You should be able to feel where it likes to run and seems to just be loafing along, this is likely where you are going to get the best fuel economy also. grin.gif

My motor tops out at about 5800 rpms. It's a 4-stroke 115 Yammy. I've always followed the conventional wisdom of not approaching the top rpm's when I'm running from spot to spot. Typically, I'll run at about 4600 to 4800- it's plenty fast and I assumed used less fuel.
However, I've heard recently that this isn't necessarily true. Is it true that 4-strokes will get better fuel efficiency and be easier on the motor when they're run at higher rpms (like 5300 to 5500)? For the life and health of my motor, what's the ideal rpms to run it at? For fuel efficiency, what's the ideal rpms to run it at? If these aren't the same, what's the ideal compromise to run it at?
