      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 .

Built in Storage Compartments-Suppliers?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about changing the layout on my boat a little over the winter-Its a early 80's crestliner-tiller. What I'm looking to do is add larger casting platforms on front and rear, removing a large livewell which is currently in the center of the floor, etc. Wondering if anyone knows a supplier for self contained-drop in type storage compartments- bait wells/live wells. Thinking something I could drop in the front casting deck if the price is reasonable. Any other ideas or tips? Thanks guys-

I am in a similar position Newcastle. I want to add a rear casting platform that I could also use for storage.....unfortunately I can't be of any help to you in regards to storage. I know how it goes with these older boats, the storage is rather outdated (i.e. 6'6" rod lockers!?) Let me know if you find out anything in regards to materials or manufacturers for the remodel. Good luck!

You could try Overton's catalog, they might have something. About 10 years ago we took our boat to Bakken's and had them completely redo our boat. We designed it, they built it, and did a fantastic job for cheaper than one would imagine. I know they sometimes frequent this board, maybe they can help with more info.

Have you checked with Cabela's, Gander, etc? We get ours from 2 suppliers- Lorenze and Jones, and Bell Industries. I'm not sure if they will sell direct or not, but if nothing pans out, give me a shout and we can get them for you.
