      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 .

Anyone have recent warranty experience with Mercury??

I have a 150 Opti in the shop right now waiting on a diagnosis, but I think it's bad.

Any warrenty info would be great, THANKS.

Lots of factors on this...

If you're under warranty yet you should be just fine... unless the dealer finds what could be construed as abusive (not saying there is) use of the motor, based on the RPM trace & time there.

If yo'ure outside of warranty it'll depend on how far out of warranty, what the rpm data shows & what the failure is. I've heard of guys having parts covered but not labor, etc.

Good luck!

I was 13-days past warranty and Mercury replaced the powerhead on my 05' 225 opti free of charge.It took almost a month to get the boat back but they did cover it.

I should have metioned I own an 06 150 that I bought new last year, so I'm one year into a 5 year warraty. I have run it pretty soft since it was new, so it hasn't had alot of abuse. (I like to cruise around with the kids at about 30mph, and I can get that doing about 4000 rpms, and it sure saves on the gas!!)

walligator, imho I will be having the samething done, but I'm waiting for the dealer diagnosis. Did you have yours done at a local dealer??

Thanks!!

I had a few issues and it took some time to figure out just what the issues were but mercury did get the job done at no cost. I was happy in the end with them.

The #4 cylinder went,but they decided to replace the entire powerhead in case there was any other internal damage.Mercury dealer in Anoka,they did a great job but it took 2-weeks to ship it on a truck line to Anoka and than they had to schedule an install.
