      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 .

More prop questions!

Recommended Posts

I have a 17' 1998 Alumacraft 1700 Tournament series boat with a 2000 115 hsp 4-stroke Yammy on the back. The prop we have on it now is not the right one- it's a 21 and the max rps varies from 4600 to 5000. I know it's not the right prop...
What prop would people suggest I try next? I'm not worried about top end speed. My two real concerns are treating my motor right so it will last a long time and hole-shot. Anyone have any suggestions?

What is the Max rpm operating range of that motor? Going down in pitch will raise your WOT rpm by about 200 rpm. Dropping down to a 20 pitch will raise to about 5200 rpm. A 4 or five blade prop will give you slightly better hole shot and less cavitation. Going to stainless prop will give some advantage due to less flex in the blades under load, the increased weight will operate more efficiently a high rpm due to the centrifugal force. But you dont want to hit a rock with one.

If you want to stick with aluminum, I'd recommend a Solas 13 3/8 X 17. They aren't too expensive and have interchangeable hubs, allowing one prop to work on a variety of engines. I'm running a 13 1/2 X 15 on a Lund 1800 pro v and and with a full load, (40 gal. fuel, 2 livewells, mass gear 2 guys) It runs 38 @ 5700. the suggested prop combo for that motor should allow you to max out between 5800 and 6000!
