      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 .

Battery question

Recommended Posts

I have an 1994 Alumnacraft Lunker V16 LTD. I have a transom mount and a bow mount trolling motor. I have 2 deep cycle batteries one stores cleanly under the splashwell in the rear, the other is in the open, up against the casting deck, my question is; can I put the battery for the bow mount in the back to clean up the floor clutter (what repercussions will running the wire that far have and if not what guage should I use)?
SICK OF TRIPPING OVER IT!!!!

You should be ok but will lose some performance due to the cable length. Not a major deal, however. I think 8 or 10 guage is about right. The thicker the better.

Addicted,

I have a 1997 Alumacraft Lunker LTD. I assume our boats are nearly identical. My trolling motor battery is in the forward right storage compartment (in the casting platform). The boat was factory wired for it to be placed there and there is a battery tray with securing strap there, too.

Is yours not like this? I suppose you do lose a little storage space, but the boat came like that, so I never gave it a second thought.

Thanks for the replies! Huskminn I believe your boat is white, mine is grey and the storge under the front casting decks is shallower than yours. I appreciate the help. I f you have any more suggestions pass them on!

Thanks Again!

Addicted,

There was an article in last months Walleye-Insider on rigging your boat and in there they where saying to use 6 gauge wire for the Bow Mount trolling motor. Hope this helps!!
