      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 .

Anyone have an idea how much it will cost for a shop to repair worn seals rings on the lower unit of a 4 stroke? Thanks!

It depends from motor brand, size, year, etc.

The more info you give us the better reply you will receive.

Thanks Valv. It is a 2003 Yamaha F75 Four Stroke. I've been told by a well known Yamaha dealer that parts and labor will be about $500. We are trying to get it covered by warranty.

Thanks for the welcome. I'll be posting more questions as I prepare for open water.

Unless it was caused by gross negligence it has to be covered under warranty, motor has 7 years, which means 4 years left.

I am wondering, does your "handle" say something about what happened to lower unit shocked.gif

I sure hope not, thats a lot of coin....

My handle comes from my favorite spots to fish. Thankfully, I have never damaged a lower unit. (Knocking on my wood desk as I type). My current issue is with a boat I recently purchased. I had a mechanic check everything out, and the only thing he found wrong was the seals/rings on the lower unit. Not happy that I need a repair before getting it in the water, but I got good value on the purchase of an 04 boat with 03 outboard. I didn't have a mechanic take a look before the purchase because I knew the boat would move quick, and there was another buyer coming to look. I brought a friend and we inspected the boat carefully for an hour before I agreed to purchase. Can't wait to hit the water.
