      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 .

There is not much to them. I needed them rebuilt on my 1999 50 hp Merc. 3 cylinder so 3 carbs. Well I did it myself and can't believe how easy it was. Just do one at a time and you can't go wrong. I just took them apart and cleaned them with carb cleaner and blew the ports out with air. Did not even need any parts, but you might. Then it still idled rough so I got a kit for my fuel pump. It was also a simple fix and that was most of my problem. Runs great now and I saved a lot of money.

There is a boat repair bus next to the freeway )94 west) in Albertville, I have had them do a few things for me and was impressed with the quality and price, in fact I brought something in, a problem and they told me to fix it myself, very easy to do and they ordered the parts, took me 5 minutes to fix so I saved alot on labor, nice people to work with

Robbinsdale Marine does a great job. It's a tiny shop that does all kinds of small motor repair. They'll even work on motors back to the 50s I believe (which is kind of rare). I've had them do work on my '63 Johnson, my '72 Johnson, and my '79 Evinrude and have felt that they are honest, fast, and do a good job for a good price.

Thanks for all the input! I have heard good things about Hannay's Marine. I think I'll bring my boat in there to have it serviced. Besides it is close to where I work,so it won't be out of the way to drop it off. Thanks again guys!
