      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Froth pack

Recommended Posts

I have a question for builders.... Is the red striped froth pack 650 kit what a guy needs for a 6.5 x 16 V wheelhouse w/ insulating floor, roof, and walls? I figured maybe I could save product w/ 1st using rigid foam on the floor and just sealing floor then w/ spray foam but maybe this kit gives plenty of product anyway.

I'm just finishing the trailer build and have really appreciated this forum for info on different builds. Lip ripper thanks! and the rest Alex area.

There were threads in "froth pack" search I just did but I didn't find the reference to the use of froth pack during a particular icehouse build. I recall a build author being impressed w/ the froth pack during a build but I don't find it again. someone had hoped to mentor his technique on the next build but I can't find that.

The froth pak 650 makes 650 board feet of foam. The area of wheelhouse is about 100 square feet for the floor, 100 for the roof, 128 for each side, and 50 for each end (ignoring the fact that the front is a V instead of flat). That totals about 550 square feet, or a little less with the V.

So the 650 would let you have about 1.2 inches of foam over the area, about R7.

That is a "back of the envelope calculation". Hope I did it right, and that it was of some use. I was curious myself.

Thanks del. I bought the Froth-Pak 620 from big box store yesterday w/. 11%off. They only had the "sealant spray foam" (green stripe) vs "insulation spray foam" (red stripe). Difference appears to be in fire retardant.

    •   This is one I found that could be very helpful during Duck season. They walk right into your boat!
    • I have to look up ramps on the interweb to see if I have any to try.  Never had them before.
    • I just talked to someone who was in NE yesterday.  He said the amount of ducks and dark geese he saw was UNREAL!
    • Fuel injected so no.  If it were carbed they'd come off and be cleaned too.  The throttle bodies were cleaned though.  The exhaust valves were cleaned earlier.  Got to like Amazon for prices and vendors that ship right away.   Reeds are in then noticed when filling with antifreeze my coolant cap didn't fit. The neck warped from heat off the muffler.   I'll have to true that up and probably put in a heat deflector.  Then stabil in the tank and into the enclosed trailer for season.  
    • Yep nice to win a couple on the road, nice 5 point cushion on the Stars and Kings who are fighting for that last playoff spot. Still need to keep getting points and we should be fine even with an average record. 
    • I was knee deep in snow when I was in the woods this weekend just north of Elk River.
    • Saw the first flock of geese while in Superior on Saturday

    • I think part of the problem was that rent was too high in riverdale. It should be better at that location. And it is right off the highway may be better for them. Time will only tell.
