      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 .

Boat pulls hard to right with trim down

Recommended Posts

I have a 1999 crestliner fishawk with a 115 Johnson. When taking off and the trim is down, there is a hard pull to the right. When the motor is trimmed up, its goes away, any ideas?

The behavior you describe is pretty typical. You can try to adjust the trim tab directly above the prop - twist it the opposite direction the torque is felt and see if that makes a difference.

Is the skeg on the bottom of your motor straight?

Prop and skeg are in great condition - I guess your saying this is just normal operation? I will look at that tab.

What is your definition of "hard pull to the right"? I will agree with marine_man about a bent skeg or trim tab. How about weight distribution in your boat. If all the weight including yourself is on the right, maybe that may affect it?

I have a 04 1750 fishhawk with a 115 Yamaha and the skeg has a terrible bend in it and my doesnt pull at all.

To a certain extent you're almost always going to have some steering torque on hole shot, or when the motor is trimmed down. It should go away and be pretty light and easy to turn oncce you've trimmed the motor out.

I have an 04 fishhawk with a 125 on it..mine pulls too . it isnt bad when im out of the hole but as i come off of plane and lower the trim there is a good pull to the right. I think alot of it is weight in the boat,when i have some one in passenger side it isnt as bad.I moved the trim tab a touch and it didnt make much of a difference.

Did you try moving the trim tab further than?

As I said earlier, it's almost impossible to completely eliminate steering torque when you're running trimmed all the way down.
