      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 .

My Yamaha died--help!!

Recommended Posts

I just bought a crestliner 1750 fishhawk. The first time I had it out on the water I ran into trouble. I had it down about 3/4 throttle, slowed down, and then I couldn't go any faster than 4mph in forward or reverse. Very frustrating, especially when the dealer wasn't exactly friendly or appreciative of the business, but that's another story. I assume the throttle cable or something like it is loose or broken. This is a new boat. Should I expect this to be a freebie as far as repair. Thanks for any input.

Your first trip with the rig, YES, they should do something for you. Whether or not they will is another story.

Could you describe in a little more detail the symptoms of the problem?

Is the throttle stuck and hard to move? Does it move freely with no response? Does the motor bog or miss when throttle is applied?

What year and HP is this engine? I assume its a console steer with remote.

Thanks for the response. It's a brand new 2003 Yamaha 90hp-console. The throttle moves freely- all the way down F or R with no change in rpm's or speed. It's like it engages in gear at the lowest possible level and nothing more.

It sounds like the throttle cable popped off either at the motor or control box.. but if it's brand new take it back to the dealer regardless of the experience you had... it should be covered as they are the ones who rigged it. Did you get a new control box & cables (shift & throttle) when they rigged it?

You might be lucky and it just popped off (they forgot to put the cotter pin in) back by the motor which should be easy to spot - take the hood off and follow where the throttle cables run into the motor and check if everything is connected. If it isn't it's probably in the control box which is a bit more work...

Its most likely the linkage as described above. Take it back to the dealer. Be firm but respectful with them. Should be no charge. Might want to have check the shift linkage too while they're in there.

If it does not shift until the throttle is almost down I agree , linkage .

Things must be pretty good in the boat business if you can turn away a customer that just spent $ 16,000 .

Agreed , they rigged it they should have a "little" pride in their work.

I am sure they spent a great deal of time talking service B4 the sale, now is time for them to STEP UP .

Thanks for the feedback. The service dept. guy was quick and very helpful compared to the owner/manager. Evidently, a plastic linkage broke. He fixed it quickly and said he hadn't seen that happen very often. He even said to "Have a nice day!" So, I guess I have faith in the system again. Go Twins!

Did he say where the linkage was located ?
(Motor or Control Box)
Just curious , being parinoid I would like to check mine out and possibly carry a spare.
Plastic in a shift cable or throttle cable sounds prone to breakage .

The linkage was located in the motor on the passenger side. It was easy to see. It was probably about 1/2 the size of a credit card. I have a 90hp 4stroke '03. Since the repair it has worked like a charm. I am thinking the same thing. Having a spare on hand may not be a bad idea. It didn't look too complex to tinker with. Good luck!

    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.
