      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 .

Stereo Installation

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up a Sony CDXH905IP receiver that I plan on installing in my 88' Sylvan Backtroller. After doing some poking around it's going to be pretty tough to find a spot to put the stereo without cutting into the foam on either side of the boat. I've looked at some gimbal housing options to avoid cutting into the sides but they all seem to be too small for this unit. I do have an additional cuby located by the livewell pump in the rear of the boat but was wondering what people have used for converting a cuby into a flat, vertical location to install the stereo (making a false wall to fill the remaining space of the cuby for the stereo to be screwed into). I also thought about just making a small housing that I could sit on flat surface and somehow waterproofing it? I'm at a loss for ideas on this and the internet doesn't seem to be yielding much for results.

There's a plastic housing that a dealer can order that will mount to a flat surface on your boat. It looks like this:

It's also called a undermount radio mount.
