      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 .

Problems with Lund Boat Seats

Recommended Posts

I have a 2009 Lund Outfitter 1750 SS with probem seats. They worked fine the first few times out and then they began to stick folded down and then stick folded up. Eventually they broke the plastic hinge cover in the back. I returned two of them this winter and Lund sent me new ones. Well now all three are sticking. My dealer says nobody else is having trouble with this type of seat and I find this hard to believe. I'm not doing anything out of the norm that I can think of. I'm sure Lund will give me three new seats. I really don't want three more of this type of seat if they're going to continue to fail. Any suggestions how to handle this or similar experiences? Here's a pic of the seat before the hinge cover completely broke off and one after.

Sorry Northlander, Lund wanted the old ones from the dealer before they'd give the dealer new ones. I'm sure they'll want these three back, but if they don't.......... That's another bad part of this deal, I'll have to be without any seats for a couple of weeks.

Bass N Spear, the dealer said they'd call Lund Monday, but maybe I should call too.

Thanks Wish I were Fishn.

I have one of the 2008 seats in my boat (as well as a couple 2007 seats). It looks similar to the one you have and it worked just fine all last season. I never expierienced any problems like you encountered. I also have never used any sort of lube on the hinges, nor do I think it is ever required. Did they make some sort of change between 2008 and 2009 that's not readily apparent? You might want to tell Lund to replace your seats with 2008's. Of course, I have yet to use my boat this season, so time may still tell.

Thanks Steffanf,

At first I figured I may have gotten a bad batch, but after replacing two of the three and still having problems, I'm baffled. My dealer is just looking at me like I'm abusing these things or something. I've searched the internet and can't come up with any other problems with these seats. I keep my boat in the garage where it's not below freezing very often and it hasn't been very hot to warp the plastic. It's always covered when I take it to the lake. 50% of the time I fish by myself, so there's no wild parties jumping up and down on these things. I just don't get it. I'll ask them tomorrow if they changed anything. Thanks.
