      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 .

Lowrance Transducer Connection

Recommended Posts

Here is the situation. I am going to install a Lowrance LCX unit in my boat. I am mounting the transducer on the transom. There is a small opening in the transom of the boat to run the transducer cable. However, for some unknown reason, Crestliner decided to make this opening very tight. The area of the transducer cable that connects to the unit is very snug when going through the opening in the transom. When I removed the old transducer cable it was like getting a dog in the bathtub. I'm a little concerned about getting the new cable through as the transducer is expensive and I don't want to damage. I'm thinking grease will definately help. However, does anyone know if there is a way to take the plastic nut off the area that connects to the head unit? Thanks.

I just dealt with the same thing last week. I used a bench grinder and carefully sanded off the plastic lips on the connector. It worked great although it was kind of uneasy grinding a brand new piece of equipment.

If you can't remove enough plastic from the nut to get through the opening, just go up and over the top of the transom. Just be sure to use a few cable clamps to secure the cable to the boat.

I did this same thing 2 years ago, It did turn out just fine.
