      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 .

minnkota vantage

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me their opinion on the vantage trolling motor as I am considering buying one for my boat? I currently hava a 55 pound thrust minnkota which is sufficent for my boat. Could I expect that something equivalent in the vantage would be OK?

I have the 101# 36 V and like it alot although it will be for sale here shortly as I prepare to sell my boat.

Depending on the size of your boat, you should atleast go with the 24V. The Vantage uses battery amps when you deploy and bring the motor back up. Having the extra amps will help. The Vantage is a great motor for boat control.

I have the 24 v vantage. They are absolutely great motors for many reasons. I like the 4 to 1 steering ratio, speed control on the thumb dial, power stow and deploy....All making boat control and ease of use that much better.

Like Derek said above though, go with the 24 volt minimum. If you don't want to spend the money or time to set up for 24 volt, then I don't know if I would really bother to switch from what you are running. It would be worth your time and money to upgrade to 24v.

i have the 24 volt vantage and to me it is the best thing since sliced bread. one suggestion if you buy it would be to invest in an outboard motor lock to protect your investment

Thank you all for the helpful info. I think I will follow your suggestion of going with the 24 volt system as I am set up for 24 volt in the front of the boat already. A little wiring and I'll be set in the back also. Thanks guys!

one thing to remember when wiring for the 24 volt vantage. it comes with 3 wires ' yellow black and red. red is to be hooked to 12 volt ONLY as the up and down deploying motor is a 12 volt motor
