      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 .

21 ft Lund Genmar Sport Cabin , REEL CRANKY is for sale !!!

Recommended Posts

Wife and me decided to go with a larger boat, I am selling my beloved 1988 Lund 21ft Genmar Sport Cabin. Boat is in good conditions, with few issues to address but it's nothing serious, just few small things.

We just got back from 2 4 days trips to Algoma, WI/Lake Michigan.

I have several pictures of it, and I can sell with or without equipment or trailer, which is a little oversized for this boat but it's solid, and has electric brakes, aluminum rims with spare, etc.

Boat is equipped with a OMC Cobra 4.3l V6 175hp inboard/outboard (low hours and runs very well, new water pump last year), large livewell, Lowrance LCX 27c with GPS, dual frequency transducer (works very well) and YES Navionics 2007 North Central US card, Raymarine VHF radio w. weather channels, 2 Cannon Mag 10 electric downriggers (new this year), bilge pump, Lowrance LGC 3000 antenna, rod holders throughout the sides, porta-potty, Kenwood CD stereo, newer gauges and switches, stainless steel prop + alum spare.

We used and enjoyed this boat twice a year for past 9 years, to go fishing salmon on Lake Superior or Lake Michigan.

Price is $ 11,000 or best offer. Boat can be towed anywhere in the US.

If price will get too low I will start to remove accessories (sonar, riggers, etc).

I DO have an 1995 Evinrude 2 stroke 9.9hp long shaft aux motor that I can add to package for $ 750 ( not sold by itself).

Email me for more info.

I get approx 35mph with 2 people, I never traveled extensively with it for a long time, just few miles then trolled a lot.

I was in Algoma 2 weekends ago and with a full tank we went out 5 times, traveled 4 miles each and trolled for 4/6 hours each.

This on approx 35/40gallons fuel. I consider it very good.

Anyone looking for a boat this size should check this out. I can't think of anyone who takes better care or knows as much about watercraft as Val.

Marine_man and Boatfixer !!!

Seriously though, I do take offers, I started with an offer I had 2 years ago (and probably should have taken it...).

Sweet! I once sold a really old Minnkota for way more than it was worth to someone in Arizona.

Is that your new ride in your Avatar Valv? Give us some details.

    • Canned beans? Hmmmmmm......might be real mushy, as they're already "cooked". Let us know.....
    • I have this recipe more or less going in the crock pot at home right now. Just used cubed ham, no liquid smoke, and canned beans instead of soaking dry ones. A bit concerned the beans will be mushy, but all the online comments said they wouldn't be. We'll see.
    • Yup. Pour ingredients in bag with souse-o-matic; come back in one week. Enjoy while eating close to bathroom. 
    • Relax don't poop a truffle!  Pictures just help give better idea of all your wonderful cooking.
    • Do you have a Swiss Verde version of that recipe for Del?   Looks delish and a great idea for those hocks I have in the freezer.
    • Just the thing for those cold, windy bean soup. I like to have some ciabatta's with melted swiss on top as an accompaniment.                  Bean ‘n Ham Soup                                                                                   1 16 oz bag of Navy or Great Northern beans 3 smoked ham hocks plus ham trimmings/chunks, about 2 cups, or you can use 2 thin-cut cooked and smoked ham steaks, cubed, in place of the trimmings 1 tsp salt ½ tsp Basil or 2 Basil leaves ¼ tsp Rosemary 6-8 peppercorns 2 Qts (8 cups) water 1 very large onion, medium chop 2-3 ribs of celery, diced small, about 1 full cup 1-2 large chopped carrots, (I use baby carrots),  about 1 full cup 8-10  drops (bit under 1/8 tsp)  of liquid smoke Veggies should equal 2 full cups PLUS ½ onion. Soak beans overnight in 2 qts. of water, then drain. I like to soak them 6-7 hours, too long and they get too "mushy" when cooking. Combine first 7 items, except the cubed ham steak, and bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered for 2 hrs, stirring occasionally. Take out hocks and Basil leaves; remove and return to soup any meat from bones. Stir in onion, celery, carrots , cubed ham, liquid smoke, and continue simmering, covered, for 45 mns - 1 hr. or until beans and veggies are tender. Remove cover and let soup thicken as desired. I like mine thick. Remember, it will thicken as it sits. It also freezes well, this gives ya a large bowl to eat and 4-5  one and a half cup containers to freeze.

    • No pic rules that I know of....this IS the food thread, also used for posting recipes. Not everyone posts pics. I usually do, a lot of others don't. Was riffling thru my recipes and decided to post that one for others enjoyment...but it seems there's always some negative blathering on this site, isn't there?
    • Never been a fan of the the vexilars they all give me a headache. LX7 over the LX6 just because its got a bigger screen.
