      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 had a custom cover made for my boat 4 years ago and now i have what i think is mildew little black spot apearing on this. Does anyone know how to get rid of this and also how to protect this from happening again. My boat sits outside all summer and storing inside is not an option.

Cabelas has a good vinyl cleaner and I would bet any boat or sport store would carry one.

Mold cannot grow without water, but the little buggers don't need much. To prevent mold from occuring you have to keep the cover as dry as possible. When you get home after an outing don't just park the rig and leave it. Remove the cover and hang it up to dry. Let the boat dry out before recovering. If you store the boat outside, keep water from pooling on top of the cover. Most of time mold will form on seams because water becomes trapped. A good vinyl cover will have the seams sewed on the downwater side, like a roof shingle.

This advice goes for any outdoor gear like rainsuits, tents, tarps, etc.

No water - no mold.

Do a search for a product named Amazing Roll-Off. It's a great water activated cleaner that was developed for sailboat sails. Wet down the area to be cleaned spray on the Roll-Off let it work for about 5 minutes, scrub lightly witha brush and rinse. It also leaves a mild protector on the surface after rinsed.

Why do you stay away from the bleach treatment? I was thinking about trying it on a canvas cover but have not after reading your comment.

Thanks for the help,

I think products containing bleach will discolor the canvas, just like it does on clothes
