      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 .

How Not To Lauch A Boat

Recommended Posts

My guess is that it was a busy ramp and he was having trouble backing it in. Everyone was getting upset with him, so he thought he'd try it this way!!LOL

As you can see by the picture the ropes tied to the back of the trialer are attached to another trailer. Ever try backing 2 trailers up, not easy. Its amazing what you can do with a

James Bond truck, but the guy did the fatal mistake of leaving the windows open.

You know, I joked when I pulled up to a boat ramp that's at the end of a road and they put a full stop sign near the waters edge. Perhaps there are actually people in this world that need it...

[sarcasm]To be fair it looks to be a tricky launch ramp.[/sarcasm]

I like the sheriff boat next to the dock.

Last week at Prescott saw a guy launch his boat and as he was pulling the trailer out ripped his front fender on the dock by turning too soon.

This is just an observation, but I've always had better luck by backing the boat into the water instead of going forward. It just always seems to have turned out better.

Maybe that's just me.

He has filed a law suit against the truck and boat companies for failure to provide proper launching instructions. Also named in the lawsuit is the launch owner for not posting warning signs. The guy will come out of this will millions. laughlaugh

The sad part of it is, somewhere there is a schmuck attorney that would take this case, and fight for this bone head.

I saw a bumper sticker once that said “Stupid Should Hurt”
