      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 .

Difference between 1 and 2 Cylinder Outboards?

Recommended Posts

Hey, I am currently in the market for a outboard kicker for my fishing boat to use for pulling plugs. I have really been looking at the NISSAN 4-stroke 6hp outboard. Since a 6hp only runs on one cylinder, what difference will I be noticing performance wise? I always heard that the one cylinder has some vibration to it compared to the two cylinder, how significant is it? Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about this? Thanks, I appreciate it.

I have never ran that particular engine before, but every other 1 lunger I have vibrates considerably more that 2 cyls. I had a 1 cyl 4hp merc years ago that would vibrate the bottom of a jon boat so bad your feet would darn near tickle.

2cyl. always ran smoother than a single. A 4stroke single will probably run smoother than a 2stroke single though. I have a 6hp 2cyl Yami 2stroke. It idles pretty smooth for a two stroke. I'd get a 2cyl if possible.

I've got that exact motor for my kicker, 2007. Starts and runs great, but she does "shake" a bit.

I think it's a good value in a four stroke 6 HP, identical to the Merc 4 stroke 6 HP, and both are made by Tohatsu. I've been happy with mine so far.

Hey sand_pike, do the four stroke Nissan motors run quiet similar to other brands? I have never owned a four stoke before.

Yes, it is quiet. I've been around the Honda 4 strokes as well, I think the honda is quieter.

All in all, the moter hs performed well for me, plus you get a 3 year warranty if you buy new.
