      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 .

Mercury Model 200 20 HP Motor question

Recommended Posts

I was recently reminded that you do not under any circumstances trust anyone and / or take thier word for anything. I bought a used boat with a 1975 Merc 20 hp motor on it. He told me that it started and ran fine, but there was something wrong with it that robbed it of a few horse power. Well, I took it to a shop and was told that the lower crank case seal is out of it, thus not letting the bottom cylender fire at all. He said it is quite a job to replace this seal, big enough that he did not have time to take it on right now.

So my two fold question is:
Is this worth me fixing? The motor is in GREAT shape, not a scratch on it, starts very easily, great spark and compression, and idles well on the one cylender.

If I chose to sell it or trade it in on something else, what is it worth?

This the the fist boat I have ever owned, so any advice is VERY much appreciated.

Jeremy
