      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 .

The motor should have a serial number on it. You might get lucky and find it on the mercury HSOforum. You can also do a search on "mercury outboard serial numbers". There are a couple of sites that have info. If all else fails, take the number to a Mercury parts dealer and they can tell you what year it is and what prop to use.

The prop may have a number on it as well indicating pitch, diameter, etc. I hope that helps

What I would do is take the prop off and bring it to a shop that will rebuild it. It will cost you about half the price. I took my prop in the spring and it cost me $65 instead of $140, I took mine to formula propeller in Brooklyn Park just south of 694 on county road 81. I have had mine out 3 times and it runs just like a new one.

Try a Comprop while you are have the old one rebuilt. It makes a great spare and the performance on my 90 Evinrude is very good. I'm sure they make one for your 60 Merc. Check Cabela's HSOforum for specs.

Good luck
