      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 .

Good Marine Battery?

Recommended Posts

Plenty of options, but I like Batteries Plus. They will treat you well.
A battery worth considering is a Northern Starting Battery. Mine has lasted for 4 years now and I simply give it simple maintenance.

BradB, I've had EXTREMLY good luck with the Trojan Deep cycle battery. If you drop me an e-mail, I'll send you to your local Trojan dealer. e-mail is; fredndeb(at)newulmtel(dot)net.
Thr batteries I use are 2-12 volt group 27 deepcycle and 6-6v golf cart batteries. The 6 volt batteries I just replaced, they were 1 month short of 13 years old and the 2-12 volts are 6years+ and going strong. I'd have to say I've got my moneys' worth.

Fellas,

I looked up the Trojan and searched for local availability, and lo and behold, Batteries Plus is listed. I'm looking for a starting battery, that also runs sonar, bilge, lights, phone, etc. Would the Trojan work for that?

I'll have a look at the other as well. Thanks for the suggestions so far!

What are some of the best places in the Twin Cities to buy marine batteries? I've bought them from a big box store before, but am looking for someone who specializes in such products. I need a new starter battery and was wondering what options I have.

Thanks

Trojans are great batteries - a little heavy though. If you do not mind the extra weight - go with it! Personally, my next batteries will either be Trojans or the Optima batteries. I like the fact these batteries will not spill/leak and there is no maintenance. May have to go on my XMas List!

If you are on a budget - get the Northern Battery!
