      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 .

Boat wax?

Recommended Posts

Is there a difference between boat wax and auto wax? I have a painted aluminum Lund I'll be cleaning up this weekend. Are any boat waxes better than others? I'd prefer a wipe on wipe off over buffing, but either is fine.

Thanks

I use the Starbrite marine polish. It's kerosene based and will remove some of the chalky oxidation on your paint. Also helps resist scum lines for a year if you apply twice within 30 days. It's basically a wipe on, and wipe off type application.

Meguiars also makes a marine wax but I use the spray on wax myself - cheaper and works just as well.

I just ended up using the Meguiars car wax that I had in the garage and I'm happy with the results on the boat. I'd still like to know if there's a difference in marine and auto wax. Or is it just a way to charge a couple more bucks by putting the word "marine" on the bottle.

anchorman,

Supposedly the marine wax is "specially formulated" for gel coat surfaces which are harder and more water resistant than automotive paints and provide a better treatment.I don't really know the difference in price but if they are roughly the same I might try the marine wax and see what it provides.Did a little research on their HSOforum and its amazing the amount of marine cleaners, washers, polishes, restorers etc. that they have.The price for the wax is comparable to auto wax so I might give it a try.
