      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 .

How to install a bow mount trolling motor to a small 14 foot boat.

I thought I'd post this just for future people who search the topic. Since I hunted for info and didn't find out very much info of value.

It DOES work. Here's what I did. I used carefully cut two 2x4 sections to fit perfectly in the bow just under the gunnel including the angles of the sides of the boat. I screwed them in with 4" lag bolts. Very solid. Then.. I used 4 of the supplied bolts and lock nuts through the aluminum cap.. and then 2 lag bolts further back to secure the motor to the 2x4's. A total of 6 bolts. (They suggest a minimum of 4)... This thing is ROCK solid.

For the electrical.. since my battery is way back in the rear bench.. the easiest solution is to buy a sixteen foot 10 gauge jumper cable.. cut off the clamps.. and cut the connectors off the end of the motors cable and use twist caps to connect and electrical tape to seal.. on the battery end I used water pipe grounding clamps.

With the deck added to this 14' Lund.. the pedestal seat is VERY stable... harder to walk on the deck though. If you see my boat come say hi!
