      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.

Once again...it looks like I came to the right place! Thanks for all the good ideas. Now I gotta go out to the garage and architect myself a solution!

Thank You!

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.

looked this up. read mixed reviews about it, but a nice idea having it with the pedestal mount:

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

    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?  
    •   If you think about this option I would try and look up some reviews. I would worry about it peeling or flaking off over time and having to keep re-coating it a lot. Bonding could be a big issue.
    • This isn't my patio but its very close to what I have. I think sandblasting would likely ruin the texture and pattern.  I'd also have to reapply a clear sealer after sandblasting and the sealer is what makes it slippery. 
    • This just occurred to me....  I have no idea if it would work..   Could it be sandblasted to roughen the surface and give more grip?         
    • I've seen a lot of options for things you can mix into the sealer before you roll it on.  I may start out going that route since I already have the sealer and the additives are cheap.  I've got a non visible area I can use as a test patch to see how it works.  I don't necessarily need it to be equal to a broomed concrete I'll settle for at least non-deadly.    Hopefully i can figure out something, my wife hates how slippery it is and is threatening to have it all torn out (the really expensive option).
