      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 .

Ranger Trailer

Recommended Posts

Looking at the new Ranger 620T, but they put it on a tandem axle trailer which is a bear to move. Anyone have it on a single axle trailer? The 618T is on a single and the 620 only weighs 200lbs more?? What do you think, would the bigger boat "ride" ok? Anyone doing this?

Thanks

Call Ranger and ask them, they are great at giving you answers like this over the phone. And they are willing to do customized work. Not sure about changing a tandem trailer to a single though --- most guys are going the other way with that. The single axel trailers with the high weight capacity get it all from the tires they ride on........

I've seen a fair amount of guys running 620Ts on single axle trailers. They seem to handle that boat fine.

I was in this predicament last year when I bought my Yar Craft tiller. I ended up going with the tandem trailer. Although it is harder to move around the garage, I feel the tandem trailer pulls a lot easier and is safer if I were to blow a tire. So the positives of the tandem axle outweighed the negatives for me.

I would, never run any boat above 18 ft on a single axle. Heck if I could I would take a tandem for everything. It's smoother to tow, easier on boat hull, safer in case of a blowout (and they happen often). Also the added weight of loaded boat on the tires of a single axle will increase the risk of blow out.

What's wrong with the tandem axle ?

My 18' Ranger is on a single axel and it seems fine. I don't think they'd do it if it wasn't safe. There's also a spare. ..The KEY I think, is to inspect for dry rot, especially if the tires are more than a few years old. It usually appears as cracking between the treads, and is the reason seemingly good tires blow... or should I say shread. ..If there's a tire guy here he could probably elaborate on this.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
