      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 seats in wheel house

Recommended Posts

I have seen a few wheel houses with boat seats in them but I have not fished in one. Is this a good way to go?

I thought about doing that in my houses, but didn't. In a way it would be a good idea, like in a toy hauler. Move the seats out of the way when the wheeler comes in. It can get pretty spendy if you put all pneumatic cylinders on all of them.

I am still in debate about putting them in my next house.

I did like Glockwinger. I use rolling computer chairs that have been disgarded, recovered and repaired. I have 2 new boat seat bases in my garage that were destined for the house, now they'll go onto the 'toon. I can always get to the "hot end" of the house on the rollers! Phred52

I just bought a rolling computer chair for my deer stand and I'm thinking it coming out after deer season and going into the fish house. I don't think you can get much more of a perfect chair for ice fishing. You can roll from hole to hole tilt back, have nice arm rest and give good back support. I will be so comfy in my stand I hope I can stay awake. sleep

I just bought 2 (flush mount) pedistool bases that matched the ones from my Alumacraft Tournament Sport seats. I just use my boat seats in the wheel house and they are pretty comfy and have the adjustable ride too. Just have to cut a hole in the floor and seal up the bottom of the base with silicone.

office chairs could cause some damage rolling around during travel...boat seats are locked in place.

I would only use the fancy captains chairs for the fishhouse if I was going that route but the price of them would probably make me change to a different type of chair like the computer chairs...

my portable seats are amazing (Frabill R-TEC) and in fact I just order 2 of them for my wheelhouse. Price was allot less than I thought they would be. The plan is to weld up about 4 floor mounts and just use 2" solid aluminum round pipe for the uprights with a flat bracket on top so you can screw the seat into that. I have found you can easily spend 150-200 bucks per seat by the time you are done purchasing all the mounts and brackets. I will post some pics within the next couple of weeks when I get this product done.
