      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 .

Alumacraft 1756 river runner

Has anyone has any experience with these boats, or any of the welded alumacraft jons. I was offered a good deal on a 1756 mv aw rr with a 90/65 jet, 2" tunnel and am thinking about buying it for the MN river. I was out with my v-hull monday and hit a log hard enough to break my motor off the back of the boat. I was able to retrieve it from the bottom of the river, but am deffinetly thinking it is time for a jet.

I have an Alumacraft MV AW 1650... great boat! Solid and stable, even handles big water exceptionally well. Been used for duck hunting and fishing mix since I bought it in 1998.

I had a 40hp Yamaha jet drive on the boat... until someone decided it would look better on their boat than mine! mad.gif It was bolted to the transom and they stole it right out of my front yard. It was great to run the river with a jet drive. It ran in 6" of water and I never worried about stumps or boulders. Just make sure you do not run the intake into sand... it will wear out the drive impeller pretty quick. Silt posed no problem. Weeds will clog up the intake if you run it into a big mat. You will know immediatley as there will be no thrust.

All in all I think you will love the set-up.

Good Luck!

Ken
