      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 .

I have owned this great boat for about 2 years and am wondering what sort of props others are running. The boat came with a 14-inch (could not get RPM’s high enough with a 14”) pitch on it and I ended up testing different props until I landed with an SS 12” prop. I can get it up to 32 MPH (5900 RPM) but am having a tough of a time with cavatation (the prop does not give me a lot of bow lift either). At any speed if I bump the tiller it will cavatate. I think it might be mounted to high. Does anyone else have any similar problems or use better props?

Lower the motor and go back to your original prop. There's a reason that your motor came with that prop: good all around performance. Sounds like you're not getting it and may be a victim of bad set-up.

I run the same boat with a yamaha 2 stroke. Your max operating range for that motor is 6000 rpm,were you getting that with the original prop when properly trimmed out? Like bryce said you may have to lower the motor. If your not getting the max operating range with the old prop you may have to add a hydrofoil or go with a stainless prop. Also check to make sure your boat weight is evenly distributed..

D-man the original prop (14") could only turn 5000 rpm the SS 12" can turn around 5900-6000. I feel I have the right prop but it sounds like the Dealer mounted the engine it to high. What does a hydro-foil or a planer do to boat?

The hydro will keep the bow down resulting in a quicker plane and will also keep the boat from cativating. But i would lower the motor first and see if that solves the problem. You have to drill holes on the lower unit of the motor to mount the hydro.
