      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 .

I just bought a 16 ft lund, with a 20 hp till. I'm wondering what size trolling motor to buy? any suggestions?

Thanks

I would think that a 55# thrust 12 volt would handle it.

I agree with Gunflint, 55'lb would be my choice. In fact if you wanted more thrust you'd have to go with a 24 volt motor.

A 16' with a 20hp outboard, that extra battery will be a hassle not to mention more weight. That weight if in the stern will blow your ability to get on plane.

I agree,a 12V. 55# thrust should be plenty for that size boat.

You could get away with a small one (36), but get the biggest one you can afford, you can always turn the power down.

I have a 16' boat also, and I can tell you that the original 30' thrust just doesn't cut it in any wind or waves.

A 55' thrust with a long shaft is the way to go. You'll only need the extra oompf in rougher seas, but you'll be real glad you did.

Just sold my 16-ft Lund Rebel. I put a 36-lb on the stern when I first got it the boat in 98 and added a 55-lb bow mount a few years later. Both were 12V. The stern was effective only in relatively calm conditions. The bow was awesome in all conditions. In fact, once I added the bow, I never used the stern. Short story: 55-lb bow and you'll be set.
