      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 .

I have a 99 mercury 40hp 4stroke outboard.Since the day it was new I have been having some trouble with it dogging out when you give it full throttle,ex:when trying to pull the kids behind giving it a goose from a standstill it just powers out or dies completly.I brought it back to the dealer twice with no solution.Just wondering if anybody else having this problem or is it my eternal bad luck.

I've seen quite a few of the newer mercs do that. My old mans got a 2001 that did. I took a look at it and all it needed was to have the idle adjusted a little. You'd be amazed at what a small adjustment on the carbeurator would do. I'm not sure what they did at the dealer, but I'm just telling what worked for me. Its always a good idea to have the repair book for any toy such as a boat motor. If I were you, I'd go get the book and see if you can make the adjustments yourself. Matt

Thanks Big,they adjusted the carbs at the dealer and it helped a little.Someone told me that if I get in touch with merc i'll find that there is a recall on that particular carb system so I'll have to try that. Thanks,Ripjigger

I just orderd a new 40 hp Merc 4 stroke today. I had a Yamaha 40 on order, but they're out at least 45 days for delivery. Changed to Merc because they are fuel injected now. The Yamaha has a carb.
