      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 .

Question about a dock

Recommended Posts

Scoot

I'd like to replace one section of a dock. The material used in the dock (see below) appears to be some sort of plywood with a layer of some sort on top of it. Each section of the dock is 4' x 8'.

Can anyone tell me exactly what each section of the dock is made of? Where would be the best place to find a replacement section?

Scoot,

This looks like the same material that we had on our dock. It's a thin sheet of fiberglass laid over plywood. Ours rotted through over time. It's made by Hewitt docks and comes in 4X8 foot sheets. Pretty expensive (over $100.00) per sheet to replace. Once I found out the cost I went to aluminum docking and am glad i did.

I second the aluminum dock, My grandparents have it and are very very happy. They will last alot longer than normal docks also.

I'm sure the swap over to aluminum would be great, but terribly costly. All I'd like to do is replace one section of the dock, since the rest are still good. I called a couple places yesterday and the cheapest I could find was $144 per section- frickin' ridiculous! Anyone know where I can get one cheaper?

I helped my dad redue a section of his dock last fall. We got a 4X8 sheet of marine grade and then covered it with outdoor/marine carpet
