      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 .

Yes you can mount it on the left side.  You might need to mount it a little deeper to get readings at high speed.  I think they are worried about the boat not being level due to the torque from the prop.

Mount it to one of those plastic boards and then you can temporarily clamp it to the boat to experiment with location and depth. 

Cheapest plastic mounting boards are cutting boards.  If you want big ones to get a longer piece of plastic go to a commercial kitchen supply/restaurant supply place.  Or Amazon.

That and in most boats other then tillers the driver seat is on the right side adding a bit of tilt on lighter boats and when alone in the boat. Even my 17.5' Starcraft when looking at the water mark from the back shows the right side sitting a little deeper.

it seems posting in the cooking forum, although odd, get's good responses quickly.  In my mind we've got 20-30 guys with a lot of life experience that want to help you out.  As proven by Del and the artist formerly know as Cass Lake aka Leech.  

If given the chance to ask any question I defer to the cooking forum.  Sometimes even cooking questions get answered.

Yer trolling motor's on the wrong side. Turn the boat around. :grin:  Yes, you can mount it on the left. Biggest issue is if you have ribs or strakes on bottom of boat, NOT directly behind one. Air pocket/cavitation will give false readings.

Looks like we've done it again. HAHAHA! 

We answered his question, solved his problem.   What more is there besides the normal drift and blather?

PS if you get a chance go check out the bluebells on the Mayowood trail.   Spectacular between mile 4 and 5.5.

Del, if I could walk 4 or 5 blocks I'd be thrilled. Thanks for the nice thought, though. :)

"Drift and blather"...I like that . Think I'll make D&B my buzzphrase.

If you can walk a couple blocks you can see them.  Park on Salem Lane SW and go through the open gate in the fence, or drive down the lane just to the outside of the fence, sort of under the power line.   They are long that lane in the woods and to the right on the bike path.  If you do this you could practically see them from your truck. 

Just don't scare all the walkers and bikers with the big iron on your hip....like in the song.

I've been driving all around town looking for Mayowood Trail and finally stopped a Medina Cop and asked him.  He said there isn't one and I realized we were back to Rochogrophy with Del and Reb. It's one of my favorite shows you can podcast.

    •  Following Monday's snow we hit the Reservoir Trail out of Twig Wed afternoon.  Freshly groomed and what a sweet ride it was but too short  More snow in the forecast.   Ride When and What You Can. Going out Fri night.
    • "A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way"  For what the new POO Axys or the 2003 Cat? Very low miles on an old sled is good but sitting idle for years is no good. Dirty carbs and or rust on the bearings was the Cats downfall.
    •  Most riders are going to cross a driveway in the ROW as if it were any other crossing.  Start putting up barricades or berms to impede crossing the the ROW and heads will butt.  Point is you may have paved the driveway onto the ROW and feel some ownership but the law says you don't control it.   I see it all the time where a landowner blocks of the ROW.   The local club might contact you or Law Enforcement will to inform you to remove the barrier.  
    • I have two huge bags of shelled pecans and walnuts from Xmas that won't be used anytime soon and was wondering if I can feed these to birds and what species of birds would eat them
    • Well, it’s been a few more days. Cardinals are eating it, but they don’t seem to prefer it. Must be a lower quality seed, perhaps? I’m only getting 1 or 2 cardinals now, as opposed to the 10 to 12 I was getting before. Also not getting the sunset feeding frenzy anymore. The redpolls love it though. Anyway, do you guys do anything to help prevent sunflower shell messes, or do anything to clean them up, or do you just deal with the mess?
    • I noticed lately most tire shops have and use torque wrenches instead of just relying on impacts like they used to. Probably a liability thing. Keep in mind a lot of shops employ high school kids part time which is good because they know everything at that age. I had a shop years back put on lugs so tight it ruined the rims and lug nuts. Breaker bar is also a handy tool as well as the BFH
    • Congrats huckfin!!! It was a crashfest! Now to the real racing.
    •   It may be that they knew the folks up there needed a little extra help because they couldn't get the Righty tighty-Lefty loosey deal down. So, they had to make special trucks just for the Yukon Territory?  
    • Couple things to keep in mind. Various wheels will require varying torque settings and it should be ON the wheel, or in the owners manual. If you are in a shop make a point of TELLING them what torque settings you want used on your tires/wheels. And of course big difference if you have steel or cast aluminum wheels.  Years back, believe it or no, some Dodge trucks would tighten turning LEFT and then on the other side they would tighten turning RIGHT!  You need not ask me how I know this but it all took place in the middle of the Yukon Territory.
