      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 .

First Damage to new rig.

Recommended Posts

OK Today I decide to take out the wife for a little panfishing. We go to a local lake and the access is a madd house. I helped a guy load his boat wait our turn and launch the boat. While I am parking the truck/trailer the wife is holding the boat. I get back and she tells me that a little black knobby thingy broke of the side of the boat as she was trying to hold the boat from rubbing against the dock with no bumpers. I look after we get away from the launch and it is the little cover that is on the side of the boat right below the fuel cover. I have a 2005 Lund Pro-V and I think it is the vent for the gas tank. I assume that it is so no water can get back into the vent hole. Now does anybody know where I can get one and also would like to know if it is a do it yourself replacement, or a professional job??

Thanks

I also did this last summer and have had no problems with the broke one. I wonder if a guy can just buy a new one, back out the old one and screw a new one in?

the black vent caps are located in a bad place on lunds older versions and if you run into dock on the side they are in they break off real easy.. and yes you need to replace them so water doesnt get in gas line..they can be found at most marine places and run about 10 bucks apiece for them and while your there i would buy an extra one as i have myself broke of 2 or 3 of these and it is an easy fix usually a needle nose to screw out the broken one and then screw in the new one..you might have to go from the inside of boat to hold in place as you put the new one in...its amazing that these vent caps cant be made of metal and not plastic because once you scrap the dock it will snap off real easy!!

Perko makes a lot of these types of parts and it's possible that's the brand on your boat. Most of the time there are two vents so you should be able to look at a similar one and see if it says Perko on it. Otherwise the obvious solution is head to the Lund dealer.

I know that all the other hardware on the boat is PERKO however I do not have any more of these on the boat so I cannot make sure.

Thanks everybody for the help. I tried last night to get the old one out and had no luck. It is broke off flush with the hull. Any tricks that you guys have used in the past get the old one out?

Thanks again.

    • Paint is roughy just used what I had but pretty dang happy with it for 30 bucks.  First charcoal test lasted 6-7 hours.A5B3A72F-6F87-445B-949E-92B20BF41ECF.MOV  
    • I still think sous vide is the ticket if you want the lean roast to be tender, juicy, and pink .  (must resist temptation to insert inappropriate remark here) Next I think I will try the accelerated simulated dry aging where the meat is brushed with fish sauce before sealing in the bag and going in the refrigerator, and then held at 103 for an hour or so (not too long) in the bath before cooking at 130.  
    • I purchased the FLX-28 last season after using the 18 for several years and wow, what a night and day difference!  I really enjoy the auto depth range feature and digital depth readout.  No more taking time to guess the depth!  Weed mode rocks in shallow water weeds when I'm looking for 'gills.  The two zoom zones are great especially for suspended crappies when the 6 foot bottom zoom isn't enough.  Now the bottom 12 feet is there.  Great battery life and it's much quieter than the 18.  Color customization is nice (I have it on palette 3) and I don't have any interference from any other flasher thanks to 20 rejection modes.  I've seen the Marcum 6 and 7s in action and they are also very nice units and allow for lots of customization.  Biggest issue is time to learn the features and the price point.  Still hard to beat the quality of Vexilar or the service the company provides!
    • My dad, may he rest in peace, used an old wood cutting bandsaw that he converted by making some sort of kludgey plywood things to keep the blade on the wheels.   Worked fine.  Not sure how easy it was to clean.   Also not sure how much he worried about it.   Ease of disassembly for cleaning, and blade retention in the presence of food grease would seem to be the big issues.  He cut up a lot of deer and a few moose and nobody got sick...  for what that's worth.  
    • Well Del, that's 3 more than he had!
    • Well, I had three, and that's about all I got.   
    • They've been ice fishing Upper Red since Nov 7th Were on track for a traditional winter
    • Great question! The only time I've found a need to do that with the K drill, is when I drill multiple holes side by side.   Really glad I bought a K drill, super light, and fast. The way our winters seem to getting, with less and less ice; I'm considering selling the Lazer Mag. Maybe some year we'll see an old fashion MN winter with 3' of ice and tons of snow....
    • I just wanted to share some of my experiments with solar power and solar heat on my fish house. It's 8x12 with one 100 watt solar panel and a custom made 4x7 active solar heating panel on the back. It puts out some incredible heat for free, up to 110F. 
    • It's the cooking forum, someone asked about your bedtime eating habits. Not sure how that's not food/ cooking related. You didn't derail nuttin but maybe rundave can enlighten us.
