      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 .

I used Scotch Guard, if you can find it. I needed 6 cans. Best to call your cover manufacturer and ask.Roy

If it is canvas/canvas, can't suggest anything to keep clean. The seam problem is the sun rotting the stitching, that's why they are letting loose. Best to get those sewn over ASAP. If it is a vinal top, Liquid Gold hands down. But with any top the first step is take your top to the car wash a scrub down the material to be sure it is clean before you apply any type of preserative. Remember if you take the boat with the top on (much eaiser if you do) don't cut the cornor leaving the car wash to quick, bad things happen.

I once covered my boat top with a plastic cover. BIG Mistake.The cover breathes and in the spring it started to get black spots(mold)because I had 2 covers on it.I washed it good with a brom andivory dishwater soap --- something to do with no detergents or something like that-the canvas guy told me to use it.Detergents break down the waterproofing.The mold didn't stop growing thus putting many small holes in the cover.I had to get another canvas.Never double cover boat.Just another thought about boat covers.

There is a product called Canvac that is designed to be used on canvas wall thent for waterproofing. But it does seem to be a little sticky so it will still collect dust.
