      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 .

Tightening Boat Seats?

Recommended Posts

I have searched high and low for an answer to this question with no luck at all, so I figured maybe someone here could help me out???

First off my boat is a 2002 Crestliner 1750 Fish Hawk. The seats are what came with the boat new, which I believe are called "Centric" seats, or at least they look the same? The problem I have is the backs on two of the seats are tilting back a little more than they used to. I can also hear something (nut/screw) bouncing around in the back of one seat. Is there any way of getting at the nuts/bolts/screws to tighten things back up? The seats have what look like plugs covering the screws or bolts, but I haven't tried to pull them off yet to see...I don't want to mutilate my seats if that's not what they are.

Soooo...does anyone have these same seats w/ the same issues, and did you fix 'em or just let 'em be? Anyone have any experience at all? If you do please let me know.

Thanks...

FYI, The seats aren't that bad, it's just they are noticeable to me...I can live with them if there isn't anyway of fixing them, just wondering if it was possible to tighten 'em up a little?

sounds like the seats may be done..just replaced one seat on my lund..same problem it was leaning way to far back..the original wood was rotted and no chance of tightening them up so replaced it with a seat as close as i could..sounds like yours maybe the same way..if they are leaning to far back..

As far as the plastic crestliner seats, I think you are done.

With the lund seats you can take out the staples on the bottom, remove the pedestal plate and just copy the plywood section and cut out a new one.

Put the pedestal plate on the new plywood and rescrew and staple the fabic on the seat to it and you are done.

We replaced a few seat bottoms this summer and they were simple.

The seats only tilt back an inch or so farther than what they are supposed to...so I wouldn't consider them done just yet! Thanks guys, I kinda figured this was gonna be the answer I'd get. Oh well, I'll just have to learn to live with them I guess...With how much new seats "like these" cost, I'll make due!!!!

Again thanks anyways.

No warranty as far as I know, but I have thought about calling Attwood and seeing what they say about it. If anyone knows if it's possible to tighten them up or not, I guess they would.

    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance
