      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 .

Names or sayings on your boats?

Recommended Posts

My older brother and I spent the last 2 months of his life looking at boats online, we sold his car and he gave me the money to put towards the boat. After he passed I went to the boat show and ended up buying the very boat we both liked and named it "4U Mikey". My legacy to him.

lambjm, sorry to hear about your brother, he sounded like a pretty nice guy to do that for you. What boat did you end up getting? I'm sure he will still be fishing with you everytime you are out there! smile

I call mine the Sea Monkey. its a little 14' tinny. I parked it next to my Friend's 19' Sea Ray one day. its an awsome Bow rider with a 350 Chevy and it does about 55MPH. mines a little tinny with a 6HP johhny on the back. Sea Monkey just seemed fitting.

The best one I ever saw was on a rather beat up old tiller. Had "The Old Dock Scratcher" painted with a brush on the side. I about peed my pants from laughing so hard.

I was salmon fishing with my wife one day and I wasn't the nicest person to deal with, she demanded to name the boat this way:

I have a little puddle jumper 12' smoker craft which I have been fishing out of since 1976 when it was new. many years banging on the dock and getting dinged from gravel on the Canadian backroads and was eventually repainted to battleship grey at which time I gave her the name "The Tincan". It has stuck and that is what it is referred to as today. My parents just bought a 14' aluminum boat for use down in Florida and they named it "The Tincan too"

My 19' Alumacraft is named the Cast A Way. The 14' is called Stay A Float. Looking at new Rangers - still trying to decide if I want a single side console or the full windshield.

I was on a lake that shall go unnamed. There was a nice lakeside house and the guy/gal must've been in construction.

He had two boats under canopies. The smaller fishing boat was named "Job Order". The much larger cabin cruiser was named "Change Order".

I know there's quite an urban legend around this, but I saw it for myself. Probably lots of copy cats out there, but it's still pretty good.
