      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 Grill for 16Ft Aluminum Boat?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good boat grill for my Lund Rebel? I want to hook one up to the gunnels (or maybe the spare pedestal seat) while I am trolling. Nothing would be better that a nice hot dog or burger while trolling along!

I am worried about getting grease all over or setting the boat on fire. Anyone with experience grilling on a small boat...comments would be greatly appreciated.

I've been with guys that grilled in boats like yours before. They used small grills with 1 lb propane tanks set and put the grill on the floor of the boat on a piece of carpet or a rubber mat that could be rolled up when not grilling. A problem with gunwales or seat pedestals when you're talking about a small grill like that is if it's windy out you won't get much heat for cooking.

I use my MR Cooker/heater and 1 pound tanks for Cooking it also comes in handy on those cold fall/spring days if a little heat is needed!

I wouldn't recommend trolling while doing this we usually beach or anchor!

Weber BabyQ is what I have. A little spendy, but it has been on my Cresliner 1850 S/F a whole bunch of times. It has it's

own little drip pan and runs off the longer, one pound cylinders. It also has a push button igniter. A tall can of beans or veggies will fit in under the hood. Very portable

and light, with a big enough grill space for four big steaks

or eight hambugers. Been out on the ice a bunch too,in my

Otter Cabin. It would need to be set down on the floor, but would be very stable down there. I like the fact I can cable lock it up to a tree at the camp site. IMO, it is well made and durable. If you want to check, you could probably find

it on the net.

I've seen grills made to hang on the gunwale and over the water. They've been around for years. Any drippage goes overboard, not in the boat. Hit the Cabela's HSOforum and type in "boat grill" in the search box. They have a rail mounted LP gas model. I don't see any reason to not use one, except only in flat water!

I carry a small charcoal unit with fold up legs. I just plan to beach the boat and grille around lunchtime. its good to get off the boat and strech the legs halfway through the day.

it even has a griddle on top if you want some early morning pancakes.

    • Read my replies to this in the previous posts above. I'm not going to discuss this exact same topic again.
    • Wrong. I like other people's Templeton just fine.   It is their advertising I objected to.   After all, their booze came from the former Seagrams distillary of industrial scale in Indiana, as did a number of products that advertised and labeled in a manner that would lead one to think they were a "craft" type product.     Clever marketing and not much else.    Read the bottle carefully.   See where it was distilled, not just where it was bottled.    But if you want to pay inflated prices for industrial products, go ahead.   Personally, Evan Williams is acceptable to me and is sold at a reasonable price.   If you want fancy hooch, make sure you are actually getting fancy hooch.  
    • I cant see them either but I am imagining its a pretty cool looking gun
    • Am I the only one who can't see the pictures?
    • This ^^^^^^^^^^  
    • If you want it for lights look into a photocel timer.  Mine turn on at sundown for 2,4, or 8 hours.
    • Take it to that pawn shop in Las Vegas. They will bring in an expert to tell you it's history,give you a low ball offer once they find out and then you can just walk. 
    • I've always been partial to the fold down couch in the back but I'd want to have storage under it and a fold down bunk above it. One thing to keep in mind is the heater.  I know you said the current heater stays for this season and maybe next but if you're doing work on the layout now you should probably plan for the new heater now even if its not going in for a year or two.  You'd hate to do all this work adjusting the layout only to find out you should have done something differently to accommodate the new heater. 
    • If mine,  I would add those drop down bunks and some pedestal boat seats.  With a smaller house like that I would want as much open area as possible.  I think those big couch/sofas take too much room.  You can always drop the bunk and take a snooze without taking up floor fishing space.  Just some thoughts.......
