      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 .

I have a 2001 90hp classic merc engine on a 1650 lund angler, just bought a laser 2 prop with 22 pitch, i am looking for top speed, the boat is rated for 5500 max rpm's, the 22 pitch runs 5200. would i get higher top end if i went to a 24 pitch or should i try a 20. I know the 20 would get me back up around 5500 rpm's but woould i neccesarily move faster???

Don't go any higher, look like you have the highest pitch prop you can install on that motor which should run at 5500rpm max.
If you go with a 23 or 24 you'll drop RPMs more and it won't be good for your motor.
If you use a smaller pitch you'll get back to 5500 but you won't get more speed.

How fast does your boat go ? Did you try to trim motor out when at full speed, that will increase your max of about 3 to 5 mph
