      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 .

FishMark 320 ?

Question

Bought new for new boat,First time out to test and become familiar with went well.Next trip out was not so good. I drove to URL last weekend and the trouble started. While sitting 400 ft from shore my depth finder read 576ft deep.Not!It takes a lond time to get a bottom reading,when it does it reads correct depth for a while, then the screen loses the bottom(it seems to fade out).The depth numbers start to rise to the 500s.Does any one have any ideas,before I take it out and tell the salesman that talked me out of an X87 what I think of it the best deal for the money.Does a 4stroke motor have any thing to do with it?Its hooked to the battery direct.Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.Dave

My brother in law bought the same unit and had the same exact problem. I told him I suspected the transducer but when he called reeds they sent him a new power head. That one is better. They indicated there may have been a bad run of a few of these locators. Call Eagle or call your dealer to fix the problem.

You need to make sure the transducer is pointing down not horizontally. I just installed a new lms-320 and asked a lowrance pro-staffer how much to tighten the transducer down. He said to tighten it down as far as it will go, squeeze those rubber grommits till they bulge out.

Did you talk to Eagle/Lowrance or the place that you bought the unit? I'm having the same problem with my new 320. I jsut called Eagle and they told me to try and adjust the sensitivity manually and see if that would take care of the problem. If that doesn’t work they said I would have to send in the unit for them to test it. I would rather not have to send it in.

I had similar issues with my unit. Two things to watch for. It seemed to happen when I had my 2nd graph on a lot. I turned of the Vexilar FL-18 and most of my problems went away. The 2nd thing is if I am starting and stopping the boat a lot it seems like it can go crazy. Apparenlty some short power fluctuations can cause this to happen. Just some possibilities to check.

    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.
