      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 .

Replacing boat's winch strap??

Recommended Posts

I noticed that my winch strap for cranking the boat on to the trailer is starting to fray and tear a bit. I don't need any extra excitement in my life. I see that you can pick one up for $15 or $20. Could a guy pick one up at FleetFarm or Gander? Is there any trick to putting on the new one? I am somewhere between a total klutz and somewhat capable. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks Sam

Esox is right, it is very simple anyone can do it. I changed one this spring and you just need to put the new one on the exact opposite way you told the old one off. Should be 1 bolt to take off and that's it.

just make sure you buy the right length of strap. I changed one this summer and the wrong length was in the spot were the short one was suppose to be at Fleet Farm. I managed to get it to work though.

If just a few feet towards the hook are damaged you could just cut off the damaged section and get the hook re- sewn,

i had the same problem and this is how i fixed mine.

brought it to a red wing shoe guy he did it for a couple bucks.

because ther is extra strap, why not cut off the end and have resewed? it does work well because most of the strap is covered and in good shape.

I bought a replacement from a marine store on London Road in Duluth for $15. It's the big, heavy yellow tow strap material, and I really like it. The one it replaced had seen better days, top to bottom...
