      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 rattles

Recommended Posts

I have an 06 lund 1625 classic with a 40 merc 4strk. When the motor is at idle the trolling motor bracket and the locator rattle like mad. Is this normal? What can be done to stop this. The locator is mounted on the console and the Trolling motor bracket is a minnkota slide release style.

I spent way too much money for a quiet motor to have a noisy boat.

I occasionally get a rattle from my locator, it's from the plastic trim piece that goes around the screen. Pressing or holding it stops the rattle for a while. I keep meaning to tape it or wedge a small piece of cardboard in the gap to tighten it up but never get around to it, and it doens't rattle very often.

Your minnkota slide release plate should be tight. Check the bolts that hold it to the boat, and the bolts in the motor that hold it to the plate. And tighten the set screw. I've never heard of one of those rattling before.

Good luck getting it quieted down.
