      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 .

I had a 60HP on a Alumacraft Magnum 165 CS and it'd troll about the same speed as mentioned above...2-2.5mph. Top speed wouldn't hit 30 mph though (GPS).

I have a 1991 Merc 60 hp on my Lund Predator which I think may be a little bit heavier than your rig. It's rated for 60 hp though in the tiller. I get 1.8 mph pretty reliabily with mine with two guys fishing. Top speed is just shy of 31 mph on my GPS.

Different props will affect how the motor trolls down too, if your not too worried about top end, you can get a prop that would be more freindly for trolling.

This is very true.

If you go this route however you will have to watch your RPM's at top end to avoid over-revving the motor. Your holeshot will improve as well.
