      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 .

advice/suggestions for asking price on boat and trailer

Recommended Posts

mike jupiter

i'm planning on selling a 1956 16ft. 1/4" fiberglass fishing boat. the make and model (at this time) are still unknown. the trailer was handmade my late uncle in 1982. both the boat and trailer are in good shape. the trailer has a lifetime license. the boat is currently registered through '09. i would be selling it without a motor.

any suggestions on asking price? all advice welcome. thanks.

That is kind of a tough one, Mike. Your first step might be to take some pictures of it, post it, and see if anyone can tell what kind of boat it is.

Second, I'd put it on e-bay. Take a bunch of pictures, write up a good, honest description and see what happens.

i'm going to put it on craigslist first. i'm definitely going to take some pictures. i figure $200 wouldn't be out of the questions. once i get some pictures taken i'll upload them on to here... maybe that'll help.

I'd also seriously consider selling it here in the boat and motor for sale forum.

I haven't heard of too many people who have been disappointed or unsuccesfull selling their item.

i had recently looked into that but was unable to make any posts in the classified section on this website. it appears as if you need to sign up and pay a fee in order to post. is this correct?

Yes you need to pay to post there. It's a pretty small fee though. Goes off what your asking price is.

One thing that you might want to take into consideration is how much are you willing to settle for the final price of the item. Asking too high and people will not be interested and asking too low will be a loss to you.

You would be selling your boat w/o the motor so that would definitely be something a person would try to negotiate for a lower price.

Place your price slightly higher than you want it to be and let the person buying it make the price. However, if he/she "low-balls" you with the price then tell them to hit the road.

Also one final point, act like you're not interested in the offering price eventhough it may be the right price, that way you might get a better bonus and a few more buck in your pocket.

Go to your local boat dealer and see what they have for sale comparable to the boat you have. Granted, a 16' Fiberglas fishing boat may be hard to find. But you will see that if the boat floats and the trailer rolls down the road, its probably worth more than $200. Good luck

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?

      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
