      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 .

keel problem

Recommended Posts

I was just given, yes free, an old 16" aluminum boat with two problems to get cleared up to make it sea worthy. 1) it is missing the front 1.5" of its center rib/keel. There is no dent or ather damage so I would love to know how it went missing. I have been told that buying a "keel cover" would be the best and lowest cost option for repairing it. Is this true and if so where would I find such an item?

2) It needs a drain put in it?

Thanks for any help

Is the boat water-tight? If not call Port-A-Welding in Rogers, MN.

He just did some Aluminum repair for me and it is perfect. I'm sure he can help with the drain too.

Yep, watertight, just need to solve the missing keel section problem. Actually, there is a minor rivet leak but, I will seal that myself.

if its water tight i would take it out and run it to see how it handles the keels are there mostly for handling if it is only a foot or so missing in the front it shouldnt be a big deal.we had a jon boat custom built for commercial purposes that didnt have any keels on the bottom we ended up in the cattails a few times till we got used to handling it though.
