      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 .

motor frozen?

I had my boat in the water about a week ago, or what ever was the last nice day before the cold weather hit. I pulled the boat out of the water not even thinking about the cold weather we are now experiencing. So I did not let it run out of the water for a couple seconds to get the water out of it. I store it in the garage. I know it has not gotten that cold at night, but below freezing. The garage always stays a little warmer but not much.

Should I be worried about any water freezing up internally that would wreck anything?

What do you guys think I should do, or am I over reacting?

I dont plan on using it until it warms up back into the 50's.

Thanks, Matt

The water will drain from the engine. Trim down so the water in the lower unit can run out and your good to go.

Exactly what ST said, there's no need to worry with an outboard, it won't "store" water inside.

iffy

Outboards are self draining when tilted down. I/O's are not. Those require draining. One more thing.... never run your motor out of the water. Thats an excellent way to ruin your water pump. That can happen in just a few seconds, especially if its dry.
