      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 .

Mold on the boat seats

Recommended Posts

The seats on my pontoon have gotten mold on them twice this summer and I am wondering what I can do to slow it down or stop it.  The boat is on a lift with a canopy so it really has no way to get wet.  I don't drive it fast enough to splash water onto the inside so it should be pretty dry when I put it away.  Any suggestions?  Is there a product that I could apply to the vinyl that would make a difference?

Thanks for your time.

Tom

I found this stuff and could not believe how well it works! I use it a time or two during the summer. My boats under a canopy as well. It's been a pretty Hot and humid summer so things just don't dry out as well.

I also use Aerospace 303 Protectant, but it is a more UV protector that many southern pontoon guys swear by to help keep the black mold/crud off. I did not use it this year (wifey has said she will apply it but never has... and I have been too busy/lazy to do it...) and I noticed that we do have a little bit for the first time since we got this new pontoon in 2012.

I may try some of that stuff leech to clean a bit and them the 303 regular again.

I like Spray Nine cleaner to clean the seats and then 303 Aerospace Protectant afterwards. I live in Missouri mold and mildew on boat seats is always a problem. Remember to closely follow the 303 directions for use though. If you do not polish the seats well after use the mold can be even worse. Do you have any way to put a fan in the boat while on the lift? That would also help.

picture of Concrobium Mold Control

I use Concrobium on patio furniture and it cleans mold off and stops it from coming back.  It is available at most big box stores

The 303 is awesome. I use it on my tonneau cover too
