      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 .

Top speed?

Recommended Posts

I just bought a lund 17oo fisherman with a johnson 140 4 stroke. Any idea on a top speed? I'm still breaking it in and cant run full throttle for 10 hours. I've been told top speed anywhere from low 40's to 60. Motor has a 3 year warranty, should I get the extended warranty for 3 more years for $1300?

Have an 1800 fisherman with same motor. 48mph with a light load. I didnt get the extended warranty. I never get extended warranties on anything. So far so lucky. Dealer told me to give the motor **ll for break in, not baby it. Just make sure you don't run at any constant speed, slow or fast. Just need to seat the valves.

Check out the Suzuki HSOforum. I think they tested the 140 on a Lund 1700. WOT at 600 rpms was around 43 MPH. You may get a little more top end if you try different props and adjust motor height mounting. Here is the link: http://suzukimarine.com/boatbuilders/boattests/lund1700v2.php Yes, I think three years of extended warranty is worth $1300.00.
I would follow the manual for the motor break in.
