      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 .

Otter skins available for old sled?

Recommended Posts

I have an older medium otter. With the design changes is it still possible to find a skin to fit it or would I have to purchase a whole new package?

Big Sky,
I had the same dilema earlier this year. I called and they said no, because the tub is molded differently and has slightly different dimensions. I would have had to fabricate a piece to mount to the old tub to make the new shack fit. More than i wanted to deal with, plus decided I wanted a larger house. I sold my tub and got a new magnum outfit.
If i remember, the new tubs are @ 2" longer than the old ones, and the front/back are level, whereas the old ones went up in front and were flat in back. I think i measured a 5" riser would be needed to level it front to back. Click on the otter link on this site and it gives you a toll free # you can call them at.

I think there may be at least 2 different groups that make the skins. Otter Outdoors and Canvas Craft in Anoka, MN. I say that because there is the company that makes the Purple and Green skins and the company that makes the Black ones.

Thanks guys. I figured I was out of luck. So much here about new shacks that I'm not sure what to do. Wonder what kind of resale I could get on the old sled.

92python,
Yup there are, unfortunatly both otter (purple/green) and canvascraft (black) skins only fit on the newer otter 2 sleds. The nonlevel front/back rims are the bugger in the older tubs.
I sold my medium tub with hitch for 80 clams, my new magnum with hitch ran me 150.
Look in the classifieds here on FM, i think there is a otter setup on there now.
