      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 registration?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi,
End of the summer I got a very well-used 12' aluminum boat as a gift, and the sticker is up. How do I register a boat with no paperwork?

I did this very thing a couple years ago. The prev. owner lost the registration and couldn't find it - plus it hadn't been registered for a number of years (according to the stickers).

Take every number you can find - the hull null, the manf. serial number and the # on the sticker if you can read it, plus the previous owners name down to the local registration station. They will have all they need to make the switch.

Did this same process for a snowmobile this fall. No problems.

Robert, just go to any registrar that handles boats. Tell them you bought it at an auction. Look on transom, there should be a hull#, also you can look inside, if there is any tag, also if it still has license numbers on side, they are valid too.

You just tell them same thing you told us, they will help you with no problem.

Great! Thanks ya'll. Now I just have to figure out who the last registered friend-of-a-pal-who-knows-a-buddy-who-married-someone's-cousin was that my Father-Outlaw traded with to get me the boat!!

I have a similar question. What happens if I can't find a hull number or any number on a boat. Is there anything I could do then? I have a boat that was registared once in Wisconsin many years ago anf the guy I got it from was using it as a duck boat. If I start pealing paint I might find something but that is going to wait until spring.

On older, smaller boats, MN isn't much of a stickler on registrations. I bought an OLD (1950's) boat from a resort a couple years ago. He gave me the registration info he had so I knew a little about it, and also a really basic 'bill of sale'. There was no hull ID plate or number of any kind. I managed to figure out the manufacturer from a little metal plate on one of the seats.

Bottom line all the state really wanted was my money and as much info as I could provide. They might get a little fussier on a Pro-V or something, but for an old beater boat I don't think they care much. The big reason for hull ID, etc. is it's easier to identify/track down if its stolen AND for insurance purposes.

    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.
