      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 .

question about my boat and motor

Recommended Posts

This past weekend me and my father were out fishing and a couple rolled up in a pontoon. they had told us they had a boat that looked like the one we were in. they eventually asked if we wanted to come see it. We did. And the guy said he wanted to get rid of it for real cheap(0$). That and he sold us his slightly used roll on trailer for 100$. My question is can you put a Johnson 85hp V4 on this boat. It is an older(i think) rinker bass boat. It has a 1/4 inch aluminum plate for the motor. Now this motor is from like 1975. SO you can imagine its a big one. We needed a tractor to take it off one boat and put it on the other. It seems to sit right on the boat and dosent seem to be to heavy for it either. When we get it out on the water what should we look for to see if the motor is too big for the boat? The boat is 16' long and is all fiberglass. Could we run across any major problems? Any and all help would be great!! Thanks

It would seem that a 85hp would be o.k. if this is a true 16' bass boat. 1st thing I would check is the capacity plate on the transom of your boat for the engine rating even before you put it in the water.
