      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 .

take a look at the floor pieces first. maybe the supports are broken.if rotten, you might be able to use them as patterns to cut new ones.cedar works real good for replacements. bought new outdoor carpet and stapled it on. been 8 years and still holding up. water left in bottom of boat is hard on floors use coated screw or galvinized screws.

Here is what you will see. Ours was '82. We added lots of extra alum bracing between the factory bracing/stringers. I would also use true marine plywood. While you are there, add a tube for running wiring to the bow. Also be sure to add extra backing for the seat bases. We thought we had enough, but had one pull loose after a fat guy bumped into it ('scuse me...).

82 Classic 16 floor replacement/restoration

It is worth it, but it will take more time than you think, maybe a bit more money than you think and you will get a sore back smile But worth it, and your boat will be like new. My vote it for vinyl floor covering.

Good luck!
