      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Unfortunatly I think I'm being scammed! The shop in in Brooklin Park its on Craigs List.So far the motor I've wanted hes called back 5 times now and the First call was no uni sonar the second call was no auto pilot the third call was 400 dollars for a Minnkota 55. It started at 400 dollars off new price then each call back to me something was omitted from accessories but the price stayed the same!

He could of just posted A Minnkota 55 at 400.00 and saved my time!

He kept telling me he was out of the shop Plowing and had to go back and check! When I asked what motors he did have,He said this one for 400 or a 70 lb thrust 24 V for over 800.

Well anyway my GREAT deal is no more.

Bummer. I was going to say that was a smoking deal! Obviously boat dealers are not going to be the most competitive on trolling motors, but I paid over 700 for mine.

I would hold out for the auto pilot at least. Makes a world of difference. I have the U.S., but have not hooked anything up to it yet.
