      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 Dealers

Recommended Posts

I'm curious of everyones thoughts/experiences with local boat dealers. I am particularly curious about Rapid, Hannay's, Nelson, and Crystal - Pierz. Was your experience good or bad? How was the service? Would you go back? What about their prices? Any help is appreciated.

I bought a Lund 1700 Angler from Crystal-Pierz marine this summer. It was kinda strange, as I live in Michigan, and basically bought the boat in abstentia. I was very pleased with the price, service,and their willingness to deal across state lines. I would definitely buy another boat from them!

I've purchased three boats (2 new, 1 used) from Rapid in the last six or seven years. You will get some of the best pricing you will find from them but that shouldn't be your only concern. On my most recent purchase, the rigging of the main outboard was done in a less than satisfactory manner. I had it corrected elsewhere. I've also found their service department to be disappointing at times. Don't rule them out, but if you buy from them, go over the rig with a fine tooth comb when you take delivery.

I use Crystal-Pierz Marine also. I use the St. Cloud location and the service is the BEST. Customer service is very important to me when making a big purchase like a boat and they are tops in my book. Scott Steil

I also bought a boat from Crystal-Pierz Marine, The customer service was excellent. However, I did feel the service after the sale was marginal. I'm split about 50/50 right now whether I would buy another one from them.

Good Luck!
