      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 .

Inboard/Outboard Lower Unit

Was out boating tonight and broke off part of the fin the points down on the bottom of the lower unit on our motor. Will that being broken hurt anything or should it be fixed right away?

It will affect your steering some, but not real noticable. A repair can wait a while.

If you don't want to replace the whole thing, they have kits at Cabelas and Gander that is a plate that goes ovet the existing fin and bolts into place. Looks like a good product to work with.

The term is skeg and its main job is to prevent the prop from getting destroyed. Call a company that does welding they will probably make you one for around a hundred bucks.

Cabela's sells one called a Blackfin Skeg Protector that you can glue on yourself for about $70.

Thanks for the replies. Talked to R&R Marine where we got the boat and they said just to use it and this fall when we bring the boat in for service they will just weld it back to normal. thanks

No skeg means no prop protection in the same sense that a doorstop protects your wall from being bashed in by the the doorknob.
