      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 .

Evinrude DuckTwin

I'm a sucker for nostalgia/traditions, especially when it comes to duck hunting. The new issue of Ducks Unlimited has an article about the "good ole days" and the gear that was used. On the front cover was this brown motor that said DuckTwin on it with an image of a flying mallard. "How Cool!" I thought. smile.gif

Well... a little research and I find that the DuckTwin was a real motor made by Evinrude in the early 1950s. Guess I need to find myself one now. smile.gif

Anyone have any stories or personal experiences with this motor?

yes I do, many years ago before I was born my dad bought one of those motors or I should say he ordered one from some place in Orr or Virginia, then when he got the motor it was blue and white not the camo color he thought he wqas going to get. Anyway it was a good motor for many years he used it as a kicker on a 21' wood Larson boat with a cabin. The main motor was a 22hp Johnson with gas tank on top and a tiller handle about 3'long and louder than all get out I think we woke up the whole county early in the morning. Oh yea the "light twin" is what we had refering to the twin cylinders, it was a three hp motor with the gas tank on top. Just a little story, my dad wanted a duck twin but got a light twin I belive they are the same motor but painted diff. ok bye.

I used to work in a small engine shop/ sport shop. I saw a couple of these in the early 80's. I have a friend that own at least one that I know of. (he has a collection of ??? (lots) of old evinrude and johnsons. There are a lot of "lightwin" motors around, bun few "ducktwin" motors. Like the previous post said I think a lot of buyers got the blue motors.

What years were they made?

I have a 52' 3 hp that I use a lot, a 56' 3hp that looks great, but I hardly ever use it. both are green johnsons.

We had a couple of those motors around the old place. I can tell you this: I shot a lot more ducks when I had one of those on my boat than I do now.

Yes, they were the same motor as thhe blue and white model. smirk.gif

Someone recently e-mailed me an E-bay link to a Ducktwin for sale. I'm not really sure what fair market value is for these neat little things but I bid the auction up a little higher than I wanted to pay this week. frown.gif One more $5 bid would have won it for me but the checkbook wouldn't have balanced out either. LOL!

Oh well... next time. smile.gif
