      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 .

Removing Silicone Caulk

Recommended Posts

For some reason the previous owner of the boat I have, used what I think is silicone clear caulk to fasten a block of foam and and a block of the pink insulation styrofoam inside the boat. I think it is so he can use it to hook lures on it so they will be handy to switch quickly.

I think they are hideous and want to remove both. Is there any known way to remove the caulk without scraping or ruining the paint? I would think a razor knife would also scrape off the paint as well.

Thanks for any suggestions.

There's some stuff called Motsenbacher's Lift Off. It comes in 5 different formulas. One of them is for silicone caulk and great stuff foam. It worked for me when I took out a shower door last year. I got it at Home Depot.

Use the blade lightly to shave off what you can and then a little gas on a rag and rubbing works well.

I quit useing silicon!! even if you remove the bead there's yet the film left that I cant find anything to remove it.With that film NOTHING else will adhere over it! Great stuff but the only product you can use over it is itself.When old it peels off and dirt & grime imbeded in it is HARD to remove.

I haven't noticed any paint coming off. I've siliconed a couple of foam blocks on painted metal in the boat as well. Had them knocked off, I cleaned and remounted them. We've all spilt gas on our auto's paint when fueling up and I haven't noticed any paint coming off there either.
