      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 .

What type of wood can you use for making a casting deck on your boat? Do you have to treat it with something, if so what?

Thanks

You can cover plywood with epoxy resin.

Do a search on this, it has been cover sooo many times, in fact it's one of the most asked questions.

Thnaks for the advice, I remembered seeing this type of topic in the past, and so I did do a search before I posted, but I didnt get any related results. Maybe I should now do a search for "marine plywood."

Thanks again both of you for the help.

Well I searched for plywood, and got a bunch of great results, but I still have one question. I have decided that if I do this, I will be using AC plywood, and treat it with fiberglass resin, the question that I have is, when I found the plywood, there was ACX, and AC2, does it matter wich one of those I use? I am not sure what the X, or 2 stand for.

Not sure about AC2, but in ACX the X is for exterior.

AC2 sounds so much like ACQ that it would probably be a treated plywood. ACQ is the type of treated lumber that eats aluminum or any other metals that are not specialy coated.

There are new treated wood products out there that are less caustic but most treated plywoods aren't designe for horizontal applications.
