      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 .

Adding Fishhawk Passenger Console

Question

Anyone have any experience adding the passenger side console/windshield to a Crestliner Fishhawk side console boat? I have a 2004 Fishhawk 1750 SC and I've decided I need the other windshield. Is the dealership the only place to order this part?

Thanks for any input.

you can get the parts direct from crestliner in little falls. I did that for an 1850 and it was easy to install.

I like the sound of that. I'll give them a call.

Are you glad you made the switch?

Also, did you have a snap-on cover you had to have altered then? I assumed I could just roll with the cover I have and remove the plastic windshield part from the passenger console when I cover it up.

Thanks.

I have the 1750 DC and I love it. It give your fishing partner a chance to face forward when burning across the lake. It doesn't take up much room and allows you to go back and forth from the bow w/ ease. I used to have a full windshield walk thru and had to get rid of it. I would fish from it and it was a bear to move from front to back to net fish, get bait ect. With the bubble size of the council and windshield you can move around them. Good luck, you could ask about the DC cover when you call. It is the same one except it has the two cloth covers under the tarp to protect the windshield. I have a pole in place between the two councils for travel to contain "whip" with the cover. There are 8 bolts that keep the councils on the boat.

I just ordered the console directly from Crestliner for $247. Rapid Sport Marine, where I bought the boat, wanted $580 for it. Nice mark up over there... Thanks for the $300+ tip Sutty!

I've been wanting to do this for a couple years to my 1998 Fishhawk 1750 SC. Do any of you know if Crestliner has parts available for this year?

Thanks in Advance!

I love having the extra console, I did have to alter the cover(not personally I paid someone to do it). I have the one that has the plastic clips on the sides of the covers that slips into the grooves on the boat and snaps in the front and the back. I don't think just taking off the windshield will let you use your cover without altering it. Mine would not anyway. I was a few inches short of making it with both windshields off.

Ya there are many areas where having a dealer install something is worthwhile but the markup on this job is pretty silly.

Last year I was told that Crestliner offered parts such as this for ten years after the model year. That applied to my 2004 though.

Give them a call at 320-616-5600. Bruce was helpful if you ask for him. He set me up with a butt seat and 27" post for the front of the boat too.

That's who added ours on...we had to wait to have the cover custom tailored though to fit both windshields. We also had removable windshields (spring up clips) put on to help accommodate the cover as they both need to be removed to have the cover on. The cover is the new style with the track system and the snaps bow/stern. They did a tremendous job though with rigging the console as well as electronics! Hats off again to CPM for their good work!

    • Where did you get your subfloor? How is it holding up? 
    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck. 
    • I would also look into using SIPS panels as an alternative to post framed. I have done a lot of projects using SIPS panels from a company called EPS in Iowa including the new fire station/ city hall in our town.    The cost of the panels is higher than the material cost of post framed but they are super insulated, go up fast and really cut down on outside noise. Our city has saved a significant amount of money in heat savings and you can even put in smaller btu HVAC which saves money. 
    • I always thought it was a visual issue. Not sure of the footage away but going house to house without seeing your lines might be a problem. I've wondered in the summer, casting a sucker off the dock and walking up to the cabin to get something if that was in wrong as well. 
    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside
