      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 .

What is my boat worth?

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a 2001 Warrior V1898DC with a 2005 135 Optimax (brand new - 0 hours, 3 year warranty)including trailer through an online auction.

What is a boat like that worth?

NADA had the boat at about $11k, but now sure how to rate the motor. I expect around $10k since it's brand new. Any thoughts?

Basically, your boat is worth whatever a person is willing to pay for it. wink

I'm trying to sell a 1996 Ford Explorer. Kelly Blue Bood says it's worth over $2500 in fair shape and I can't get $1900 for it in good shape. mad

Sorry, I know that's not the kind of answer you were looking for. I believe you are wondering how good a deal you got.

You got a good deal on that boat as long as everything is in good condition! You could probably turn around and sell it for 125% - 150% more than what you bought it, but I say hold on to that boat! It'll treat you extremely well for a number of years to come I'm sure.

Not sure of the fishing you do, but looks like the boat could use a bow mount and a sonar unit. Probably an extra $1500 - $2000 depending on what you get.

Did it come with a boat cover too?

Enjoy the new ride!

Nice looking rig and I agree with the others, a really good deal.

One tip on the Optimax, be sure to use outboard oil for DFI motors, and use Mercury Quickleen or SeaFoam or something similar in every (or almost every) tank of gas. Doing so will prevent carbon problems, which is important with that motor. I have a 175 Opti and really like it a lot.

If you need electronics for your boat I can probably help you out, the links are in my signature. Congrats again and good luck with the new boat.

Had the boat out on Watab for a bit today. It was a lot quieter than I thought it would be. Worked great - topped out at 40mph.

I have a 797 c2 sideimager going on the boat, and will be in need of a trolling motor soon. Even though I got a great deal, I tapped myself out, so I'll have to wait a bit on that.

I found what looked like the cover in one of the rod lockers - So I should be able to button it up pretty well.

Thanks for all the advice, as I plan on getting many years of enjoyment - I was always a tag-along up till now.
