      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 .

Difficult to remove boat from Trailer

Recommended Posts

I have a 16" Spartan Roller trailer ('93) and have to really push on this thing to get it off the trailer. It has many rollers on the back of the trailer but a small single roller near the front and one Center roller in the middle.

I replaced the front small roller and put on a new self-centering roller in the middle but it is still very difficult to launch off the trailer and will not be fun in the cold weather.

Can you guys think of anything for me to try?

Maybe lower those 2 new rollers to try and relieve a bit of pressure?

I can post pics if it would help everyone.

Thanks!

Back in until the boat floats than pull up just enough for you to unhook the boat without getting wet. This will make it easier. Also if that dont work its time to lube up them rollers.

You can replace the center rollers with urethane ones. The harder rollers will make the launching easier.

If you have bunks on the side, also check that the center rollers are not set to low, causing the boat to drag on the bunks.

If your trailer does have bunk's on the side's, give them a generous spraying with silicone spray. Be sure you wait until the carpeting on them is dry. Ever since I did that to my bunk's my boat almost launch's itself! Good luck! 1DIRTBALL
