      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 .

Well, we've all waited a long time to see pics of Chunky's new laker taker, so here she is. I shot these off the Van Vac dock Sunday as Mr. Trout pirhouetted and spun the queen around like a dancer. Well, OK, a really big, heavy dancer. grin.gif

I'll let him fill you all in on the specifics of said boat. grin.gif

Healed over is right. In 1956 deep V hull wasn't part of our vocabulary. She spent her first 20 years on La Croix as a freighter. Mostly hauling propane and ice. There's a guy in Ely who actually worked out of her up there when he was "much younger". He said she had a Merc the size of a Maytag on the back of her way back then. From there it's a mystery where she's been. I've had people tell Vermilion and other people tell me Basswood.

Well she'll has some more stories to tell when you get done with her. I'm sure she'll still be freighting ice and plenty of methane gas too.

Thanks man. It's a 56 Alumacraft Queen Merrie. Pride of the fleet when it was built. That lake is Burntside.
