      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 .

Repowering Alumacraft Dominator Tiller

Recommended Posts

This is kind of going to be a long winded question.I have a 1991 Dominator with a 1991 Evinrude 40hp .The motor I have is okay,but I want to move up in horsepower.The boat is rated for a 60hp.I would love to get a four stroke,but it is just not in the budget.I would like to go with a yamaha or a mercury 2 stroke.I do alot of backtrolling for walleye so the next motor would need to troll down pretty slow.My question is,"Will a 60 hp do what I want It to?" Sorry for being so long winded.

P.S. Does anybody else have the same boat with a 60hp,and how well does It do backtrolling?

I don't think that it's a long winded question at all. You're going to get a lot of answers and a lot of opinions. I'm curious as to why, if you do a lot of backtrolling you don't get a transom mount trolling motor? Any way my opinion is that Yamaha and Merc are both good motors, my preference being Yamaha. If my major consideration were trolling I'd also take a hard look at Honda. Probably didn't help much, sorry.

A few years ago i wold have said go with the Merc, Yam, or Honda. Today I would never even consider then. Get an E-Tec. By far IMO the best motor out there. Quieter, better fuel economy, lighter, more power, the list just goes on and on. Anyone who says different has never had one IMO.

Don't even think about trying the evinrude etec unless they have fixed the shift linkage in the tiller handle. We were sent one to try out a couple years back and in the 5 weeks had it the shift linkage broke 3 times, it was only driven by my guides so I know it wasn't abused. The shift linkage looked like a single strand coat hanger, not a braided flexible line like our hondas. We were suppose to try it out for the summer, but I sent it back at the end of june.
