      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 .

foam flotation in a boat

Recommended Posts

I'm replacing the floor on my boat, and need to replace some of the flotation. Can I use the foam that comes in a can, and just foam it in?

I used the foam in a can in my '65 duracraft when I redid the floor, worked great, can get messy though. much better than the crumped styrofoam that was in there. If I did it again I'd use the white foam that stays soft the yellow foam gets very hard and can expand too much and lift the floor if your not careful. and clean up any mess right away, if you let the yellow foam harden it can get like concrete and get hard to remove.

Since I asked the question I was told not to use something like "Great Stuff" because it retains water. Anyone hear that? If it does, what should I use?

You used to be able to get a floatation type foam from marine dealers. From what I can remember, you mixed a base with some type of catalyst in a cup and poured it in place and watched it rise. Hope this helps. And yes, Great Stuff will hold water. You need a closed cell foam.
