      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 .

'99 Mercury 90hp problem....HELP!

Hi everyone, I decided to take the boat out last night to get some fishing in but it didn't turn out too well. I launched the boat, started the engine as usual, slowly left the launch and about 50 yards out it died. After that I could start it, but anytime I put it in gear and gave it a little gas it died again. I could also start it while having the throttle on full (out of gear of course), it would start and right when it would start getting rev'd high I would pull back on the throttle and it would die again. The bulb it hard and water is coming out of the pee hole. There is also plenty of gas and oil. Any idea's? She has been running great all summer until now.

Verify spark on each cylinder. Sounds like the carbs and the fuel pump need to be rebuilt

My buddies dad has a 75 merc and his motor does the exact same thing until warmed up good. We have to sit at the landing for a good 5-10 min letting it warm up before we can think of taking off.

Sounds dumb, but did you give it plenty of time to warm up? With the summer winding down, the water is colder along with the air temps and it might take an extra few minutes to get up to operating temps.

I would say fuel starvation, could be dirty carbs or bad fuel pump. Try to start it and see if it keeps running while pushing key in (choke).

If it gets better then your carbs needs cleaned or rebuilt.

Mine started doing that a bit last year but didn't think much about it at the time.

This year, I needed to get the carbs cleaned...

Check the fuel filter, check spark, etc.

Also make sure you don't have water in your gas. I had a problem this summer with my boat starting on full throttle and then cutting out as I dropped the RPM's down. I was suspecting the carbs, but turns out I had a bunch of water at the bottom of the tank. Too bad the dealer figured that one out!

WHAT KIND OF GAS DO YOU USE? TRY PREIMIUM AND ADD A CAN OF SEA FOAM TO 20 GALS OF GAS OR HALF CAN TO 10 GAL OF GAS I DO THIS WITH MY 2002 9O AND SHE RUNS LIKE A TOP YOU WILL NOTICE TOP END IS MUCH BETTER TWO. GOOD LUCK. DAN

Does it come to life when you hit the choke just before it dies? I have a merc 90 2002 model. Does the same thing. Been to the shop for a checkup. All was fine. I concluded its just cold blooded! Mine comes to life when i hit the choke! sure is irritating specially when the ramp is busy!!
