      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 .

Mold during storage

Recommended Posts

I was storing my boat on my property for three weeks until I was took it in for winter storage. I put the boats canvas cover on and then placed a larger tarp over the whole boat to prevent bleaching. When I opened up the boat this weekend, the fishing rods where covered in mold. No where else in the boat did I find any mold, not even the bait wells, which had some residual water in them.

This is a Lund Pro v with the center rod storage. I was able to clean the rods up pretty easily. Has anyone else ever experienced this? What would be a good way to avoid this in the future? Do I need to take the rods out every time I need to wrap it up for a couple of weeks?

I appreciate any advice/help.

Thanks,

Des

You can buy mold/mildew inhibitors from various boat/rv dealers that you place inside the boat during storage. That should take care of your problem. Put a few of these inside the boat prior to covering and make sure that the interior surfaces are as dry as possible before covering it for prolonged periods of time.

This is critical to avoid Mold during storage - let your boat air out for a couple days at a minimum with all hatches open and the tongue jack cranked up as high as possible with the plug pulled prior to covering the boat for the winter.

If you put it away with moisture in it, and your tarp seals it up pretty well there's no place for the moisture to go.
