      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 .

Used Boat Acessories?

Recommended Posts

This may be a stupid question, but is there such a thing as a boat salvage yard or any place that would sell used boat accessories in the southern metro? I know there's a few places that deal pretty much exclusively in used outboards and parts but I'm looking for accessories. I'd like to put a pedestal seat in my 14' Lund that's been home-customized. And if it's possible not to pay $60-$80 bucks for the assembly that would be ideal. It's an older boat and I don't need to buy new, plus, times are tough!

That's really generous Gregg52! I appreciate it but you're right, I don't get up that way very often (unfortunately). I'll check out Fleet Farm. I was looking at Gander before and it seemed like more than I'd like to spend on my old fishing boat. I also checked out some on-line auctions and Craig's list. Not a whole lot, but that stuff changes by the minute. I appreciate eveyone's suggestions. Open water's only about a month or two away (Down here in So. MN anyway)

Gregg52,

My e-mail's in a previous post. When you get down this way, let me know. I can meet you in Shakopee--it's only 15 min away for me. And I can make it worth your while, I'm not looking for handouts. I just didn't want to buy new if I didn't have to. The base is the cheap part but if you're looking to get rid of a functional cylinder for a pedestal, I'd be happy to meet with you on it if you're in the area. Again, I appreciate it.

For a day trip, there is a boat salvage yard off of HWY 70 not too far west of Siren Wisconsin. Boats galor that are old age, etc. I don't know if it is like a junk-yard or not, but someday I'd sure like to stop in and look around...
