      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 .

Aluminum Boat Repair

Recommended Posts

I need some direction on a little "Ding" I have on my PROV.

It's on the bottom of the Hull where the "Seam" of the Transom and Hull meet. No punctures, but I'm concerned about hull integrity and need it looked at and/or repaired by an expert.

Thanks for your suggestions in advance!

Can you get at both sides of the ding? If the ding is not to deep I would try a plastic or rubber hammer and a block of wood on the opposite side for a dolly to keep from going to far. You may need 2 people. If you are a little paranoid after bumping out the dent scuff the inside and put a little J-B weld on the dent and you should be set

I guess I should have been more exact.

This is actually an abraison scrape on the bottom portion of the seam where the rivets are. Part of this seam has been scraped away and may compromise the strength of the boat in this area.

I'm hoping to get a referral here for someone locally (TC area)who is known to fix these problems or tell me it's no real big deal.

Chells,

Not sure where in the Cities you are located, but there is a great place in the North Burbs (Ham Lake or East Bethel, not sure which) called George's Fiberglass Repair. They repair both glass and aluminum boats. I had an issue with an Alumacraft that got dented before I ever put it in the water and they fixed it up like new. Could never tell a repair was made. Give them a call and have them look at your Pro V. They should be able to help.
