      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 .

Need new fishfinder flush mounted in pontoon steering console

Question

Our current fishfinder on the pontoon isnt displaying (not sure what the issue is) and we plan to replace it. I'm wondering how many fishfinder models are made for a flush mount into a steering console? Our pontoon has about a 5" by 8" opening for the unit next to the steering wheel and I'd like to reuse that instead of mounting one on top of the console. Anyone gone through this process or have recommendations on a unit?

you can look around for a unit that has those deminsions and make a "L" bracket, screw to the back side of console with shot screws and put silicone around the gap to seal it if you want.. you could also cut the hole bigger if you like one that doesnt quite fit.. ive had to do this numerous times with boats, tractors, cars and other things that require flush mounting..

The new Lowrance HDS units are easy to flush mount, they have a removable faceplate so after you get the hole cut to the right size you just screw the units in and put the face plate back on. And with the built-in antenna that's on top/front you can still use the gps even with a flush mount. It's a good way to go if you like that unit.

If you're thinking of something else, many units have flush mount kits available. And the L bracket that broken_line mentioned is a good way to go as well.

Try to find the same model. Or maybe contact the dealer and they could help. You could try online auctions if the model is discontinued. What brand pontoon do you have?
