      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 .

Fleet Farm, used it for my old lund. Fleet Farm Brand Exterior paint in red, may be called tractor paint or something like that. I primed the outside then 2 coats borrowed a friend's air painter. Inside I scraped off loose then painted over in a white, same type of paint. Was good enough for me, with assorted items needed, tape, scraper, wire brush I think I spent under $40, but that was 10 years ago and the whole could use another overhaul

The oil based "marine" paint at Ace is incredible stuff. Mad my pontoon sides look like new, and while I used blue, I bet their red is pretty close to lund red. It looks great after 5 years. I sprayed it on with air compressor.

I painted one a few years back. Prep is the big thing. Scrap and wire brush all the loose stuff off then wash with miradic acid. My paint job is ten years old.

I just re-painted a Lund rowboat this spring. I was able to get fairly close to "Lund Red" using FF branded spray paint! Not a big fan of spray paint for finish quality, but for an old rowboat, I figured I'd give it a shot. It actually turned out surprisingly good! I think 3 cans cost me $12....plus about 2 hours of sanding and taping....not a bad evening's work........ The old paint was scratched up and a little faded, but solidly adhered to the aluminum. I didn't have any bare metal to worry about priming by the time I got done sanding, I just had to rough up the existing coat with a fine grit on my palm sander..

THANKS FOR THE INFO!!!

ANOTHER ? WHAT KIND OF PRIMER DO I USE ON THE ALUMINUM????

I DID REDO SOME ALUMINUM WHEELS ON MY CAR AND USED DUPLICOLOR BRAND SELF ETCHING PRIMER AND THEN USED THEIR WHEEL PAINT, THEY STILL LOOK GOOD AFTER ONE MN WINTER.

SO I WAS THINKING I WOULD USE THAT PRIMER ON THE ALUMINUM AND JUST TOP COAT WITH SOMETHING ELSE.....

ratherbe, I repainted the green interior of my old S-14 several years ago. I 'washed' it with lacquer thinner and painted it with spray cans of Textured Auto Trunk paint from the auto parts store. As I recall, it took ~5 cans to do the area I wanted done. It's available in a tan or medium grey, I went with the tan so the interior didn't heat up so much from the sun. The nice part is it's slip resistant. Phred52

    • I just wanted to share some of my experiments with solar power and solar heat on my fish house. It's 8x12 with one 100 watt solar panel and a custom made 4x7 active solar heating panel on the back. It puts out some incredible heat for free, up to 110F. 
    • It's the cooking forum, someone asked about your bedtime eating habits. Not sure how that's not food/ cooking related. You didn't derail nuttin but maybe rundave can enlighten us.
    • After today's drubbing, I fully expect the Goph's to take the Axe and crush Wisconsin's heart next week. Seriously. Why? Because MN teams have a knack for beating the best and losing to the worst.
    • And I didn't mean to derail this thread, somebody asked about my bedtime eating habits. I view message boards like real life conversations, and when do conversations truly stay on topic 100% of the time? And speaking of, seemingly all online forums have seen a decline in participation in the last couple of years, it's not just here at HSO. Can't truly put my finger on the reason why, but it is what it is. The world is continually changing. Sorry that I can't contribute much here in the cooking forum, that's what women are for. LOL Kidding ladies, calm your teats down.
    • I will look into that.  Thank you
    • I keep it on and only fish Upper Red Lake.
      I'm spoiled

    • Looking to upgrade.  What are your thoughts on theses units?  Im still using my Fl8 which is at least 15 years old.  Still works great but getting a little noisy.
    • Does anyone know of a program where a person can create a calendar for your home computer?  What I would like for it to do is be your wallpaper and change automatically at the beginning of each month.
    • Nice rig Snowbound.  What do you use to haul it around?
