      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 .

Wet sanding the hull is hard to beat for overall long lasting results. It takes a whole lot of work, but trust me, if it's done right, that's the best option. Like I said it's a lot of work, but it's something most anyone can do...all you need is water and and the right (fine grit) sand paper. After all the sanding is complete, the boat gets buffed, waxed and then is ready to look pretty. Bass boat restoration sites are a good place to find in-depth information on restoring fiberglass hulls and how to do it properly.

You can try other easier stuff first, but if that doesn't work or fades with time, wet sand the hull...

3M makes a fiberglass restore you can use with a buffer. Best method I've ever found to restore faded fiberglass finish. My boat is black and the gunnels were very oxidated. This was the only method that restored it back to original.

Unfortunately, I borrowed my friends 3M formula and I can't find it locally. Wish I could give you more details....I need a bottle myself.
