      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 .

Stainless Steel Prop Vibration

Recommended Posts

I just put on a stainless stell prop on my motor. It says there may be some vibration at low rpms. I have heard of this from someplace else. What would cause this?

The stainless prop also has a much more aggressive rake and cup. Which when in neutral will cause turbulance when the water spins it.

I have a 150 yamaha with both 3 and 4 blade ss props. The 4 blade vibrates much more at idle speed than the 3, which I atribute to it being heavier. The 4 blade is a Mercury REV 4. I know Mercury makes a hub kit spacifically designed to eliminate this rattle (Flo Torq IV). My boat is a 2007 that was previously owned. The previous oner used the Flo Torq IV hub kit with the REV 4 prop and said it completey eliminated the vibration. I do not know what brand motor and prop you have or if the Flo Torq IV would work for you or not.

But, the vibration is from a heavy prop.

I run a 3 blade SS on my 225 e-tec H.O., I tried a 4 blade and found alot more vibration as well as it being slower. Again it's the heavier prop, there is nothing when I started with the factory aluminum prop.
