      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 .

Honda Outboard Prices

I don't know what it is about googleing boat and motor prices but I always seem to end up with a bunch of sites that I can't make heads or tails of. Does anyone know what a new 25hp Honda goes for? I'm guessing around $4000

I see what you mean gunflint. When I tried doing some searching for you, I gave up in frustration. You will probably have to contact your nearest Honda dealer, which is Beaver Bay Sports in Beaver Bay. I think your guess of $4,000.00 is pretty close. Good luck! grin.gif1DIRTBALL wink.gif

Hey Gunflint. Last Oct. I purchased a boat package. I put a Honda 30hp with t/trim on the boat and the agreement shows a price of $4300. Longshaft electric start. Of coarse I usually take it in the shorts, as I'm not a very agressive wheeler/dealer. grin.gif The motor is on '06. Hope this helps. Junky.....

That does help. Sounds like you got a pretty sweet deal. Are you happy with the Honda?

I had a huge smile on my face the whole 1.5 hrs that I got on it. Then winterized it and put it to sleep for the winter. It is the same size and dimensions as the 25hp by the way. wink.gif Aperently the saleman sold me the 30hp for the same price as a 25hp. Nice guy. grin.gif I wouldn't be with a motor without trim/tilt, worth the extra money to me to have. It has a nice little roar/grumble to it too. grin.gif The tiller handle is really nice too. If you leave me your email, I'll send ya some pics of it that I took before storage. I have been a yammy guy for years and traded in my yammy 25hp fourstroke ptt. I think I'm gonna like this one better. Let me know about the pics if your interested Mark. Junky......

What a nice rig. In case you didn't know, my specialty is helping anglers (such as yourself) break-in their new rigs during the uncomfortable break-in period. Let me know if you would like some help in this area. cool.gif

Why would anyone want a new honda, yamaha, Merc, etc? From what I can see an E-Tec is the only way to go for new motors.

I wouldn't mind a E-Tech at all, but they only go down to 40 hp. A motor that big would cause all the wildlife in the BDUB to die from global warming. smirk.gif

Guess it's true you learn something everyday. I have never seen the need to get a smaller motor/kicker. The 90 horse and a drift sock get me down to the speeds I need if it's that windy. My trolling motor works under any other conditions.

While you are at it, price out a jack plate lift for the 25. Last June I was up in Alaska and our guide had one. He had a 20 foot aluminum Willy boat (about the same size as a 20 foot Lund Alaskan) Using the jack lift really increased the speed on that unit.
