      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 .

Transom saver question

Recommended Posts

I bought the normal(swivel or something) one and when setting it up it isn't too far off the ground.

Does anyone have pictures on how theirs is setup or how many inches off the ground is a safe place for the motor to be raised?

Thanks!

Well, I'm guessing you must not have a rear center roller guide. Or, perhaps you do. But, I'm thinking you must mount the tab on the back of the rear crossmember on the trailer. Then, you probably need to fully extend the transom saver. I have a Lund 1425 with a Merc 40 HP that I use this way. The motor is only tilted back about 15-20 degrees, but this is more than sufficient to clear any obstacles (the axle would bottom out first)...

Your right Gregg, no middle roller. It's fully extended and the motor is about 9" off the ground. I think your right that the axle or even the rear cross member would hit first but it still seems low where it may hit in a driveway or something.

Thanks

One thing you might want to try if you think it is still too low... slide the boat up forward about 4-6 inches on the trailer. You would just have to slide the bow post (forget the exact name) forward. As long as you are not too tounge heavy afterwards (I doubt it is possible with that 40 HP back there), all should be fine.
