      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 .

Prop pitch and fuel economy?

Recommended Posts

When running a 25" pitch prop as compared to a 23" prop I am getting about 3 - 4 MPH more speed at 4000 RPM's. I assume this means I am getting better fuel mileage with the 25" prop. Is this correct? This also means I am only running 5400 RPM's at top speed with two guys and gear. The rpm range for my motor is 5000 - 6000 RPM's. Is that lugging the motor to much. Most of the time I am criusing around at the 4000 RPM"s range.

I would think the extra load on the engine means your burning more fuel especially coming out of the whole getting up on plain.

Remember Aa truck with taller gears in the rear end may get better gas mileage but it has a transmision to get you at optimal opperating speeds.

I would go back to the 23" prop to get your RPM's back up where they should be. I agree with croixflats that you're probably burning more fuel because you're lugging the engine pretty good.

If you get a good load of people / gear you're going to have a lot slower holeshot and will burn more fuel there too.
