      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 .

Last fall I fried the powerhead in my 1996 Johnson 90HP. After a lot of agonizing about rebuild vs repower, I bit the bullet and bought a new Evinrude E-Tec 90HP. The dealer is bolting it to my transom today and Monday we'll do sea-trials and prop-selection. He'll throw in any SS prop I want, but is recommending a Viper as the best match for this motor/hull.

The boat is a 16.5-foot V-hull (Smoker 161 ProMag), with a fairly long sloping canadian-style bow.

Anyone with a similar rig running an E-Tec? What prop do you use? What pitch?

Recommendations?

Thanks in advance,

I had the Smokercraft Phantom, with the 88hp Evinrude. 17 pitch and 19 pitch props. 17 got out of the hole quicker, 19 had higher top end.

Aluminum prop, too many things out there to hit, such as , submerged deadheads, patio furniture, and the occasional rock.

Hey Hans,

I ran a 17 on my 90 Evinrude with my Crestliner and she's about the same size as your boat. Been hearing some good things about the E-tech motors so I hope you'll be happy with it. grin.gif

Time will tell, but seems like a case of "having your cake and eating it too" --- all the advantages of a 4-stroke (quiet, slow idle, no smoke, fuel economy) without the disadvantages (weight, higher price, mechanical complexity).
