      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 .

tipping a boat over?

Recommended Posts

I am new to boating and was wondering how hard it would be to tip my Larson 186SEI (almost 18 ft) over. It has a Volvo Penta 3.0L and tops out at about 35-40 mph.

For example, if I had it at 35 mph and did a quick full turn, would I have a high chance of tipping over. Also depending on the wake of course.

Do people tip over power boats often?

Thanks for your answers.

I would think it would be hard to flip that boat over. I have a 165 and it doesn't get tippy. When I take a sharp turn I throttle back. I don't like pushing the limits or having the oposite side of the boat laying on the water when I turn. I would take it easy on the turns IMO. I don't think it would tip, but if you hit a wake right it could or could take on a lot of water and cause problems.

Welcome to FM by the way.

Wecome to Fishing Minnesota!

In my experiences it's easier to almost tip a boat (or take a heck of a wave over the bow) with a I/O if you trim all the way down, crank the wheel hard to one side and then run the throttle up.

As Northander said - drive safetly and you'll be fine.

I've done alot of dumb things in my boat, got a little wet, took on a little water, but never came close (that close) to flipping it. I've got smarter since thing...

There made to float, they will handle more than you will, but don't push it.
