      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 .

Whats it worth?

Recommended Posts

My brother has recently bought a 1967 Larson 16' in fair condition with a Mercury 1000 (100 hp) that runs good. It also has a 36lb Minnkota trolling motor. He plans on using it this summer and then maybe selling it. He would just like to get a rough idea as to what he could ask for it. He originally got a steal and is going to try to make a profit after cleaning it up and getting everything working properly. I don't have any pics to post so nobody needs to ask. Any help would be grealty appriciated.

With that old of a boat it's all about who you can find to buy it - most people in the general public won't be that interested in purchasing it probably, so you would almost need to find a collector.

I'm guessing the guy that got rid of it was the one that got the "steal". grin

Like marine_man said, it's tough to find a buyer for that boat. Believe it or not, you could probably pull the motor off and sell it for more that the whole package.

I agree with the other, probably not much. The motor is worth more I'm sure. I wouldn't try to sell in the fall, hard to get rid of them at a good price then. I would wait till early spring. If you fix it up real nice you could turn a profit, but I don't know what you paid for it. Plus what's you time and material worth?

You see a lot of boats like that on craigs list for cheap sometimes free or free with buying the trailer. Especially as it gets closer to winter. But if you find the right person in the spring or early summer you might be able to get something for it.

Dtro, good stuff, I was thinking that same thing...(the steal thing, not the motor thing)

MinnesotaMongo, "weahll, that woulda been pretty nice"

He plans on selling it in the spring or early summer and it is structurally good, just very dirty so materials will be cheap. I thought about just selling the motor too and we do have a place that the boat can just sit avter that so we will see what happens I guess. Thanks for your help.

    • I still haven't "Pulled the Trigger" on this but my question still is, If I get standard package, (no Hopper or recording) and I drive out on Lake of the Woods and drop the house will I be able to have the dish on the house and find the satellite signal in 30 seconds with Dish like I can with Direct ? Or not so easy..
    • Actually, Joe Mauer is 16th in batting average this year. Of those 16 players:
      Only 2 Have less RBI
      Only 1 has a worse SLG %
      None have less stolen bases
      None have less HR's
      NONE make more $$$.
    • Dave, big diff between a baby (Duff) and young teen (leech) to young to fight but not to watch what's going on in the world at the time.  I know you just started you morning troll!  Good luck fishing!
    • We just have it at the lake.   I could be wrong about the 5 bucks, as it was from memory of last year.   But I figure they want or need something to keep me in their system.    Having a subscription in two locations would be different.   I have never done that, although have considered it. 
    • If you weren't a kid, why weren't you there in person? Why watch it on TV when you could have signed up for the real thing? 
    • Ha Ha, me crying? I was the only one who stuck up for you. Looks like you probably had a time out? I was messaged by a mod and I told them I wasn't interested in having comment removed/you sanctioned. Guess someone else had enough of you. If you think I eat very much sugar, you are wrong again. I am diabetic so I probably ingest less sugar than anyone here, maybe even you.
    • Only 9 players in all of baseball have a higher BA and OBP than Joe. Of those only 1 is in the AL. I would happily give up 10-15 HR a season in return for 30 points of OBP.
    • Is that the only place you have it?  We have it at home with a dish at the lake also and we can suspend that box for free and turn it on and off whenever we want.
    • Maybe the ice show in St Paul in December. It's pretty hard to find anyone close enough to justify the time and expense required to save the few dollars you end up saving.   
    • Any one here have used medium-heavy jigging rods for saltwater? If you do, what is the best technique to be used?
