      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 .

What's with my Lund??

Recommended Posts

I just bought A Lund SSV 14 and have been on the water at least 3 times a week. As of the last week I have had the aluminum flexing in the bow end near the bottom on the left side. If I go over any wakes or on water with minor white caps the boat makes this terribly loud sound as the aluminum flexes in and out. Would this be a warranty issue? does any one else have this problem?? I sure am dissapointed in the quality of this boat. What do you guys think?? I do have an appointment with the dealer next week.

There may be a couple possibilities. It may be possible that the aluminum was damaged,(Did you buy it new or used)? and improperly repaired. Sometimes repairs will stretch the metal so that it creates the "oil can" effect. (Popping in and out). The other possibility is that one of the structural ribs is not attached the way it needs to be. See what the dealer has to say and if they're not sure what to do with it, we'd be happy to look at if for you and see what we can do with it.

Is stretching of the aluminum covered under Boat warranty? I bought the boat brand new a couple of months ago and figured that Lund is the idustry leader in strength and quality boats, I may have been wrong!

Great thanks for the advice guys, I will get a new boat either from the dealer or Lund itself. It really peeves me when I spend top dollar and get junk. They say in the catalogue that they drop these boats from float planes in the North from heights of 100-200 feet to ice cold water yet mine could not take a few trips on lake with mild white caps. How is Lund to deal with on warranty? They say they have the best? Anybody deal with them??

We've never had any negative experiences dealing with Lund or any of their dealers, so I am optimistic that they will take care of you. My guess is that it's probably not an issue of quality, (because Lund does have very high quality control standards) rather, it was probably just a fluke random defect, which is difficult to avoid in any manufacturing process. Nonetheless, it needs to be addressed and I'm sure that you won't have any problems. Good luck.

I had my hull dent a couple of weeks ago. Lund has been very good they have it now and told me it would be 3 to 4 weeks. I have a 1700 fisherman. I noticed it sounded like a barrel flexing when I hit a waves long before it happened. There is not ribbing in thehull on mine, they said they would reinforce it with ribs.

I can't see the flexing when Im at the back of the boat but can hear it ( sounds terrible) but the person sitting near the bow can see it flexing and usually place their feet there to stop it.
