      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 .

boat cleaning

I was wondering what everybody uses to clean that nasty green slime off of the boat after a season of sitting in the water?

Go to your grocery store, or Walmart and buy The Works, toilet and bowl cleaner.

It's the best stuff and works really good.
I use a spray bottle, spray it, let it bubble up 5 minutes, maybe scrub a little with a plastic brush, then rinse it off.

Beware fumes are nasty, do it outside.

That's the cheapest cleaner I've found, and it works on aluminum or fiberglass. Hull cleaners are basically same stuff but more diluted and they cost 10 times as much.

Simple green and a brush (long handle soft bristle) works really good and will not hurt the paint. It can be mixed with water in whatever strength you need. After its clean wax that baby and it will be much easier the next time around.

Anyone ever try any kind of a degreaser on their boat? My rear main seal was leaking on my truck on the last trip we took and there is oil residue all over the front of the boat and trailer. Dont know what I should use to clean it up. Thanks for any info.

The Works have no effect on stickers and decals....I should have an endorsement from mfg for this advertising... grin.gif

Honestly it's the cheapest stuff I've found around, only problem I noticed if you spray some on your arms it stings a little...

The Works is awesome stuff but as I have said before on this site - RINSE, RINSE and Rinse again and again. If there is any left on your metal it will eat it up right now. Believe me I have seen many showers ruined because of not getting it all off. I don't think it would hurt your graphics but it will eat metal.

I had black exhaust water type marks on my motor for a couple years. Dish soap wouldn't cut it. I used "Black Streak Remover" (for campers) from places like Walmart and now the motor looks like brand new. Dissolves bugs, tar, grease. I used it on the boat in spring too. Worked great.

Oxi-clean, this stuff will clean anything. Or try one of the new orange degreasers. Polishing compound will work too.

Have a good one!

Gaffiti Remover seems to work well.
It also takes those bugs off of bumpers and licence plates. It is rather pricy but it is available at most cleaning supply stores.

    • No Rule was made Dave, just asked for some decency from others.  Forgot who we were asking though.
    • We TOLD ya!!!  nya nya!!!      Good luck!!  Now go follow my recipe!! best pickled beets around!
    • I couldn't find a recipe anywhere online for pickling raw  beets (unless just refrigerator beets) so I must have been mistaken and will just cook them first!  Love them pickled but not so much just cooked!  Thanks for ALL the comments!  
    • Who was looking for .22 shorts on here??? Someone was......Bobby Bass?
    • Hmmm...poor customer service. Shoulda offered to show her a pic of yer pride and joy instead.   
    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL. 
    • A friend cleaned out a relative's house and gave me some ammo, some of which I can't use. Looking for reasonable offers on any of the following. I am in Inver Grove Heights. PM me if interested. 6 boxes 20 gauge Federal 2 3/4" duck/pheasant shells, 5 boxes are #6 shot, 1 box #4 shot 9 50 round boxes .22 short plus 3 partial boxes 9 50 round boxes  .22 long (not long rifle) plus 1 partial box 44 rounds .38 special lead, plus 43 rounds .38 special lead hollow point
    • LOL! Literally just a couple days ago you (Delcecchi) and Leech made the rule that someone shouldn't include you in a conversation that you aren't already engaged in and now you (Delcecchi) are butthurt that you (Delcecchi) weren't included in my statement in a thread you (Delcecchi) had yet to be engaged in. You can't make this stuff up.
    • OK, whatever..  Maybe a qualifier if it is not the global "we"
