      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 .

Boat steering cables

Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 Tracker Tundra with a 135 OptiMax. The steering cables need to be replaced. This is a dual cable rack and pinion system. Do I have to remove the motor from the boat in order to remove the cables? If so how does one connect the hooks to the motor to lift it? Thanks for all your help.

Yes, more than likely you will need to lift the motor. Depending on the amount of clearance you have, but in most cases, you will need to. There is a special lifting eye that is normally used that screws into the flywheel. If you dont have access to one, be very careful with whatever you come up with. A creative strap configuration will work, just make sure it cant slip out. Make sure what ever you are lifting with also has the capacity to lift that much. You stand to pay more in repairs than you would to have a shop do it if that baby tips over!!! Be carefull!!!!

Lack of clearance is the issue and believe it or not I don't have one of those special lifting eyes. I guess I'll cradle it in a strap in such a way as it won't tip over. Thank you for the response.
