      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 .

Swing-away Tongue

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever installed a swing-away tongue on their boat trailer? How much length can it save you? How is the install? Is it better left to a professional, or is it something I could do fairly easily?

I had it done to one of my trailers, in that case the trailer manufacturer made a swing tongue that basically just bolted into the frame. I had a dealership do it because the trailer had brakes and there were more lines and wires than I wanted to deal with.

In terms of how much length you can save, it really depends on where your winch stand is, and if there's any room to adjust it's location and still have your boat ride correctly on the rollers or bunks.

RW,

I think Hanson put one on this last spring. If you have a way to get ahold of him, I think he might have some indepth answers for ya.

I installed one on my trailer 2 years ago....it's been great! Installation was easy with only needing to cut and bolt on the new tongue. I shaved a little over 2 ft. off tongue in order to fit in the garage totaling nearly 2.5 ft. when folded. My tongue length was pretty long so the winch stand was never really much of an issue. Good luck!

I have been interested in these also. Now if there was a way to shave 1/4" off of each side for the width, I'd be able to store it in my buddies garage and save a few hundo a year.
