      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 .

I have installed a 3rd seat where one of the thwarts used to be. The thwart that is directly in front of the rear seat is where the new third seat is.

I will include a motor mount. I think this is the same seller and same mount that I have. If not, its darn close.

I am also going to include a seat. One of those cheap $20 strap in canoe. If you want I can include another seat its a moulded fold down seat. I have a frame I made out of oak that clamps onto to canoe seat and it has a quick release mount for the fold down seat. I haven't used that seat at all this year but once summer comes and I would be out longer then 4 hours I would switch to it for the back support.

I also have a canoe mover, 2 wheeled canoe carrier. I have to find that, I didn't use it at all last year but if I find it I will throw that in. I also have a different "carrier" that I used all last year. Its the plastic tub from a Cannondale single person bicycle trailer. I took the front bar that attaches to the bike and the cover, and cover support pieces off of it. It is now just a plastic tub with two bicycle wheels. The larger wheels of this make using it to move the boat around so much nicer then the standard canoe carriers you can buy. I usually take the boat off my van, put the front of it onto the tub. load the boat up with all my gear and wheel it too the water that way. Makes for one quick trip.

I'll also throw in a canoe paddle and a twin-bladed kayak paddle. The Kayak paddle is just long enough to work great and hauls you across the lake.

Has scratches and some dimples and surface gouges. I would say its standard type stuff any roylex boat would pick up going down a few rivers with rapids. Nothing to worry about.
