      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 - motor questions

Recommended Posts

DavidH

Would anyone be able to tell me what size motor would go onto a 12ft aluminum hull Lund? Some people have told me 3HP would be fine. Some say no bigger than 5HP.

I am looking to get one for my boat but I dont want to get something that ends up being too big.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated smile.gif

Thanks

Whats the motor rating say, should be on a plate mounted on the transom.
I would think a 5 or 6 hp would be a good match.

As ST said .. look for a plate on the transom .. it should say the max HP. If there is no plate you may be able to call a dealer to get some help.

I had an old alumacraft 12' that had a max rating of 10 hp... thats what I had on the boat and it worked great, a 6 hp also worked well.
