      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 .

17' Lund Explorer 115 yamaha 4 stroke?

Recommended Posts

More than enough as the console version of the 1700 explorer is only rated to 90, and the tiller at 75 according to my 2004 Lund catalog.

Wierd, page 52 in their catalog says max 90 in two places while refering to the SS model. I took a look at the specs in the back and it said 125 there? I guess a guy would have to look at the CG rating plate.

I have the 90 HP Yamaha on my 1675 Explorer, it now runs great though I am still playing with props it will run about 40 mph (GPS not speedometer) and has a good hole shot.

Depending on where you buy the boat you may have to have the motor height adjusted . One Large MN boat dealer mounts the motors on all of the boats they sell as low as physically possible . Maybe to sell more props ?

Fisky I saw the same thing but it is rated to a 130 I guess. Thats what it said on the boat. 2004 is a bit bigger and heavier than last years. 4 " gunnel and 36" deep at center. Real nice boat and real close to the angler.

I like how they look....very fishable boat. Waiting for the dealer near me to get some 1800's in stock, explorers and Mr Pikes to give the once over.

Northlander,
I have read thru some of those threads over there. Sounds like it could be something as simple as oilchange procedure, or something having to do with break-in? It also sounds like some folks have no probs and nothing but good to say about them also. Myself, I know 3 people that run these engines, 2 since early last season and the other since the season before. I've fished out of all 3 of these boats and from my times in them I have to say they are way sweet. None of these guys have had any problems with their F115's, and have nothing but good to say of them. 1 guy did have a tachometer calibration problem when he first got it, but that was taken care of right away by the dealer. Not sure if it was the fancy multi function tach or something with the electrical system of the engine or what? No problem now though. If I were looking to power a boat with that size engine that would be one I'd seriously consider.

I have a 115 yamaha on a 2004 1700 SS explorer. It gets up and moves. Dealer wanted to sell me the boat with a 90 Yamaha, but with all the posts I have read. Not too many people wish they had a smaller motors on their boats. Boat runs around 45-46 with 2 people in boat. Also 115 is fuel inj. 90 has carbs.
Motor so far has been great. But time will tell like with most motors.

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
