      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 .

mercury high performance

Can anyone tell me if I can use this high performance lower gear lube in my 115 96 mariner motor? How about a 25 hr mercury motor? I have always used the standard stuff but someone had a jug of the high performance on sale. Obviously I would be draining out the old oil and adding the new stuff.

What brand and type is it ? If you are uncertain, then keep the one you have, the $ 5.00 saved won't go very far if you wreck your lower unit.

I actually assume it would be fine but you make the judgement.

Yes you can use it just don't mix it with standard gear lube. Here's the info from the Mercury website.

High Performance Gear Lube:

Engineered to provide maximum protection for sterndrive and outboard lower units.

Exclusive formula is engineered to provide extended gear life in extreme conditions including high-speed and high-horsepower applications.

Extensively tested to provide excellent protection against corrosion and excessive wear.

Specifically formulated to help prevent failures due to water entering the gear housing.

Extreme pressure synthetic additives protect gears from metal to metal contact.

Since no industry-wide standards exist concerning marine gear oils, it is essential to use products such as Mercury

High-Performance Gear Lube which has been specifically designed and tested for marine applications.

DO NOT mix with Mercury Premium Gear Lube.

Engineered to provide maximum protection for sterndrive and outboard lower units.

Provides warranty protection for all Mercury MerCruiser sterndrive and Mercury, Mariner and Force outboard lower units.
