      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 .

Aluminum boat repair

Recommended Posts

Hey guys/gals,

I know this topic has been dicussed before, but can anyone tell me what to use to seal an aluminum boat? I have an older 12' boat that is leaking through the rivets. I did read the previous post about rivet replacement, but I also remember someone mentioning something about a silicone(or something similar)product that can be applied by paintbrush. Thanks for your help.

I used a cheaper version of jb weld marine on my 12 footer, and it works just fine. Was a tube for about 5 bucks at the hardware. Make sure you get the marine kind. JB weld marine is only a couple bucks more.

I am meeting with a guy this weekend that has a liquid rubber product. I have talked to him about leaky boats and we are going to discuss whether this product can be used for the leaky boat application,and if it will work on aluminum boats. I am trying to get him to use my duck boat as a guinea pig. If this product works and if it seems to be a simple application, I will let you all know. Maybe send a sample to Rick for testing.

Later Danny

Sounds like this liquid rubber might work, the only drawback is it gets sticky in hot weather. So if you put it on the inside of your boat you may have to put down floor to cover up the product. Cold weather is no problem keeps it's elasticity up to 65 below. Have to get my little duck boat out of storage this summer and the guy is going to give me a sample to try on the bottom of my boat.

keep you posted.....
