      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 building a crank up fish house

Recommended Posts

Please help. I'm in the process of building a crank up style fish house and I'm at the stage where I need to install paneling on the ceiling / walls. What type do I buy? Now I've read the "Building a Crank Up Fish House" thread some time ago and it was recommended to install "plywood" paneling. What's that? When I shop for paneling, I do notice that some types have a wood grain finish on the glue side. Is this plywood paneling? Also, this stuff comes in various thicknesses. I've seen some thin, flimsy stuff (about 1/8" thick) that I would like to get to help keep the weight and cost down but I'm concerned that when screwed to the wall (not planning on using glue) that it may ripple or bow out - especially on the ceiling. (This stuff does have a wood grain type finish on the glue side.) Any recommendations?

For what it's worth, the house is framed with 2 x 2's, 16" OC; pink sheet insulation everywhere. Can anyone please offer some suggestions?

PS: Thanks much Troy for the great thread "Building a Crank up Fish House". Definitely proved helpful and insightful. I very much appreciate all the time you (and others) spent on this post.

Plywood paneling has wood grain on the back side.

Thickness is a trade between weight and strength. Determining factors on what thickness paneling are what type of siding do you have and what type and thickness is the exterior sheathing.

Example: If all you have is aluminum sheet siding and no plywood on the exterior you should add strength with interior paneling. So go with 1/4 or 3/8th paneling. Use 1 1/2 galvanized screws along the top and bottom then cover with trim. With the joints you'll have a few options depending on what paneling you choose. Thicker paneling will have a lap joint and thinner paneling will have but joints and plastic H trim piece that will cover the seam and fasteners. The studs I would recommend screws with a plastic trim cap. The interior will probably take more abuse then the outside. You could use 1/2" paneling along the bottom 3' like a wainscot and then 1/4 above with a Z trim at seam.
