      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 .

Motor Vibration at High RPM

Question

This past weekend I noticed my outboard motor had an audible vibration noise above 5,000 RPM. Below 5,000 no vibration. What would be some likely causes of this. Bad prop??? It just stated happening. It's a 1999 150 Johnson Faststrike, aluminum prop. Thanks in advance.

Prop is a possibility, or something in the lower unit... that is where I would look 1st.

The motor being out of tune is also a slight possibility .. but I would heavily lean toward the prop and check to see if theres enough lube in the lower unit.

i agree with dave. i'm surprise you are running an alum. prop. if you have a spare prop; change it and see if the vibration is still there. if it is then i would have the lower unit checked. it could be the start of a problem. if you find it early it could save you some money in repairs. if hte vibration goes away , then you know it is yur prop. it is possible to that your motor mounts may becoming a little loose and showing some vibration too. my $.o2! del
