      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 .

115 Yamaha correct prop size.

Recommended Posts

I have a 115 Yamaha on a on a 1700 Lund Pro Angler with a 12-5/8 x 21 prop and I was looking at maybe purchasing a Stainless Steel prop but in looking around I can't seem to find one in that size and i was wondering if anyone would know if I can go larger or smaller on either dia or pitch. If anyone could help me out that would be great!!

Thanks

Do a search on Yamaha 115 props selection. It been talked about a lot on here. I run a 17 stainless now and tried a 15 stainless. 15's are working for some guys and some guys a 17 is working better.

Like DD says call Jay Soderbloom at 218-644-3392 and tel him what your looking for. The prop you have now seems way too big to me.

If you cant get him on the phone check out www.soderbloom.com and leave him a e-mail and he will get back to ya asap.

Thanks guys so what I getting from the emails is that the prop that came with the boat is why to big so the smaller the number the bigger the prop size ? The guy i purchased it from got the boat from a local twin city marine dealer and he has a spare, brand new one to go with so, I need to be calling or looking up a 17 pitch until/ ?

Thanks guys, great help as always.

The number like 15 or 17 or 21 is the "pitch" or how far one revolution of the prop would ideally propel the boat. The goal is to select a pitch that will allow the motor to get to its rated RPM when running wide open.

A smaller pitch will increase the motor RPM. From the comments, you are probably not getting to the correct RPM with your 21 pitch prop. I would bet you are seeing more like 4500-5000 at Wide Open Throttle. The motor is rated for 5000-6000 RPM so you want to be in the upper part of that range.

I hope that clarifies rather than confuses

Before I would think about buying a different prop I would run the boat / motor and see where your RPM's are at when you're at Wide Open Throttle, and trimmed out.

Post that and we'll be able to give you a better educated guess.

A 16p or 17p stainless should be close to perfect. Aluminum props are less aggressive than stainless props thus the extra pitch. My boat came with a 21 pitch however a 17p-19p stainless is whats needed for my combo depending on weight.

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
