      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 .

Has anybody checked one of these out yet? I test drove one a couple of weeks ago. They said it does 52mph. Well, I could only get 51.4mph according to the gps. This was with 2 of us and a full tank of gas though.

The salesman tells me at 50mph "let go of the handle" Are you friggen nuts!!! I said. Well I finally did it and holy cow, she just kept going straight down the lake. The hole shot was amazing also. Talk about setting you back in your seat.

Anyway, I'm getting one in February.

Not standard, but the merc 175 opti is a pretty good motor. Easier on the gas than normal 2 strokes and VERY quiet. It even ideled down to 1.4mph on a calm lake, making it a great trolling motor.

No storage is water tight. But it is much better than my Yar-Craft!!! The design looked as though it would stand up to most conditions.

As far as the motors go. Lund is affiliated with Merc. They come with a merc and the dealer must account for those motors. You have to have the dealer take the merc off, and replace with the Yami. You would then have to sell your merc. Anything can be done for the right price. I'm not saying that it can't be done. I have a call into my dealer to see if you can buy the boat without the motor and then take to another dealer for the Yami.

Since Lund and Mercury are the same company you can be sure that you will be paying a premium to hang a Yammy on the back!

Lund sales have dropped considerably since they have gone Merc pre rig and they have terminated a bunch of dealers this past summer.

Lund is no longer the company that it was for many years and it remains to see if Brunswick will take a Bayliner marketing approach with them. Bayliner builds a boat to sell at a price point. And we all know in our hearts that the only way to make something cheaper is by making it cheaper.

Ya Lund lost a lot of credibility with me when they did this Mercury or "pay a price" B.S.! If this doesnt get taken care of in the next few years I and several thousand others will no longer be buying Lunds Im sure. I hate when companies pre rig and then charge a person to vary away from it. Right Tracker?

Looks like Alumacraft and Chrestliner sales will be going up soon. Maybe Ill buy some stock in them.

Since this is a tiller boat does it come pre rigged? There is no throttle control or steering system on a tiller boat. Seems to me you could hang any motor off the back you wanted.

BTW Crestliner is also owned by Brunswick so they are affiliated with Mercury. As you say Alumacraft is all on there own and you can get any motor you want.

On page 39 of the 2007 book promoting the Lund Boat line, it states under the option section that Honda is an option on the motor. This is where the specs for the 2010 Pro Guide are listed so this may be an option. Personally, I am thinking Alumacraft and the 185 Tournament Sport. The 2007 has changed over the 2006 (slightly) and sure looks sweet to me. Have to hope my ship comes in!

You would be surprised how much rigging goes on those bigger tillers. You've got the hydraulic controls, oil line from tank, wires from the floor control, battery cables, etc.

Yup..looking thru their online catalog, every picture of their boats has a merc hanging off the back of it.

There is one way to show a company that you do not approve of them charging you a premium because you want what you want as opposed to wanting what they want you to take. "Vote with your feet." Buy another brand. Lund makes a great boat. So do some other boat manufacturers. I haven't ever justified to myself why Lund feels that they can charge so much for their boats. This is why I've never owned one.

Don't know what boats you've priced. Lund has the only 20ft aluminum tiller I have found. So their price @ $30k for a package is much cheaper than $40k for a Ranger, Triton, Yar-Craft, or Warrior.

There's also a tachometer and trim gauge which are motor brand dependent.

Fishhook is right in that Lund does show Honda as an optional motor for the 2010. It's listed under their Optional Equipment. If people are looking for a tiller yet do not want to pay the added cost of re-rigging a Lund with a Yamaha or some other motor, Alumacraft does make a Tournament Pro 185 Tiller which is basically 19' long and appears to be set up similar to the Lund 2010 (similar, but not exactly the same). I would agree that Alumacraft may see more sales come their way since they allow any motor to be put on their boats. It will be interesting to see in the years to come if there will be an adverse affect on the sales of Lund and Crestliner. Lund or Alumacraft, those tillers look like nice boats. I for one have those consoles that "get in the way". wink.gif

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
