      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 .

Help, Gas Smell!!!

Recommended Posts

I bought a used 1999 17 ft. aluminum boat. There is a gas smell that is only in the dry storage compartments up front. I brought the boat to my local dealer who did a pressure check on the gas tank and also checked all of the seals and connections. He didn't find anything. My guess is that gas from an extra tank spilled on the carpet in the dry storage. Does anyone have suggestions on how to get rid of the gas smell?

Thanks much,
Tinski

Hey Twitter, I agree with you. Once when my kid was in Bantams he was injured and we had to take him into be checked, and I had to go into the locker room to get his hockey bag. Let me just say there was about 14 open hockey bags in that room. It was so strong I had tears running down my face and almost passed out from the stench. I don't know how they could stand to be in that room long enough to get dressed. If febreeze works on a hockey bag gas smell would be a walk in the park grin.gif

yeah, i for one never understood how people couldnt enjoy the smell of hockey equipment. There's is nothing better than the mixture of hockey tape, leather and sweat.

That Fabreeze is good stuff, or you could put some baking soda in there and vacuum it out after a day or two.

The smell of hockey is an aquired one. Being Canadian, it must be in my blood. I absolutely love it.

About the gas......don't have much to add. grin.gif

I make my own febreeze. Take a spray bottle and fill it 1/4 to 1/3 full of Downey, or whatever softner you use in the wash, (depending on how strong you want it) and fill the rest with water. I have been using this for a few years, ever since I got the hound....

I'd imagine your storage container is plastic lined... if this is true you'd need to use a water or citrus based product. If the smell is in the carpet, Febreeze would work well to neutralize the smell, but if it's into the plastic you might try something like Goo Gone that's citrus based. If it's metal you could use something heavier obviously. Whatever you use, I'd use a cleaner of some type, as anything else (like Febreeze) will only mask the smell, I'd even imagine that good old fashioned Dawn dishsoap and some hot water would help a ton. But I would address this as if there's still gas on the liner, it could transfer teh smell and damamge other things.

It was a good idea to bring it to your dealer. A gas leak is a serious issue. By the way how do you like your Princecraft?

How did you know I had a princecraft? I like my princecraft quite a bit. It runs nice and I like how wide the boat is and the space it offers. Outside of the gas smell I've been very satisfied with it.
