      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 have no experience with fish houses (not alot of ice fishing in MO) But I have quite alot of "spray" foam experience. Will the foam be exposed or do you fill a cavity in the floor? Be very careful you know the expansion rate of the product you are going to use, It can easily deform your bottom if you overfill it.

I have heard too many problems with people using this. It really expands!

I did the underside of my with 2" rigid last summer, works well and no need to put anything over it, just leave it exposed to the world. This stuff will last a lot longer than anything you could possibly put over it.

I did my 8x16 house for under $100. Insulation, glue (PL300) and I used some plumbing straps to secure the insulation in case it ever comes unglued. Don't need to see a piece fly out from underneath it while on the highway!

I think it depends on which type you would use. My dad used to work on Schwans trucks that were damaged and sometimes they would have to re-spray the inside of the cooler with the stuff. I have often thought that would work great, but also know it probably would not be cheap. That stuff is durable though. You may want to check with a local truck repair shop to see what they say. All refridgerated refer trailers use this stuff to insulate. If you find a great deal, let me know - I will post if I do as well.

Great Stuff makes a MINIMAL expanding spray foam. It might get expensive though. I would think it would take a lot of cans to do an entire floor.
