      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 .

I really had no idea what to do with it or what its worth.    If i could get 250 or so I'd be happy.  I might keep the chips for my HDS7 for the ice.   Thanks for the research del.

Ill try to get something for it.  Not holding my breath for too much though.   It is a good unit just outdated.  What else would you do with it?  Take it somewhere that recycles computer or similar items?

You can buy a NEW 5 inch graph with GPS for $300, that should give you an indication of what it is worth.

Isn't the lcx104 like a 10 inch display?

Totally my bad, I was thinking it was a 5 ". Let me rephrase, you can get a brand NEW with warranty 9 or 10" screen with sonar and GPS for $1000 or less. Something that old is going to have trouble using any new mapping chips (processor speed will be the issue) so I would put TOP dollar at under $250 if it came with a chip. Sorry to be the guy that puts a price tag on it, but old sonars are not worth much with all of the advancements going on nowadays. You can get a 9" touch Lowrance  (Elite 9TI) with side imaging for $1000 now, and it has the ability to make a map on the fly!

I sold a lcx-25c and 27c last spring.    Got $190 for one and $250 for the other with cables and transducer.   Newer than your unit but for reference.

    • Looks like a squid attacked the brisket.
    • Much better results this time. Nailed it!  
    • Gibson and Butler showed what good defense looks like last night.  Now can the others follow suit? Teague, is not off to a good start.  i would rather watch Jones than Teague.  Not 1 thing looks good with him.
    • What lens you use for the night sky pictures? I really like them.
    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. Stole a few ideas from some of you but hopefully no one gets too worked up over that. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out! Frame- 8X21' +4' V Valley Manufacturing galvanized hydraulic Walls/roof- 1x2" rectangular tubing Siding- Flat black aluminum held on with 3M adhesive tape Roof- 3/8" plywood covered with rubber membrane Floor- 3/4" marine grade plywood Insulation- Closed cell spray foam   One piece aluminum wheel wells.  1/4" cedar tongue and groove. At this point I was still undecided if I was going to stain it or not and sense I did end up staining it I should have just used pine. Looking back on it now it could have saved me a few bucks. The start of staining. I used Sherwin-Williams Pecan.
    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
