      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 .

Putting electric start on my Outboard.

Recommended Posts

Ok, heres the skinny

I bought this tiller 20 horse outboard (Johnson)

In 1989, still runs like a charm.

I have taken care of this motor.

I hate to sell it and get another motor

you never know what you may get.

So I have been told I could put a starter on it

and I am good to go.

Do I have to put an alternator on as well?

So my friends what do you think.

The reason for electric start is my shoulder get really sore

from pulling the #^&*##@ Rope.

Has any one done this before or did they

just buy another motor?

like to hear your thoughts

You don't have to put a stator and rectifier on it, but you will have to charge your battery after every or every other outing, depending on how many times you start your motor.

If my memory serves me correctly, you're looking at about $450 for the kit. Then you still need cables, harness, battery, stator, rectifier.

My Mercury has electric start and no alternator. I bought an onboard charger and just plug it in after every trip. Not sure about installing the starter though.
