      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 .

turning my bunk trailer to rollers...

Recommended Posts

CALVINIST

I realize we are in the middle of winter here, but this brutal cold snap has me thinking abouit open water.

I have an old trailer for my old 16' Lowe boat. Have really struggled with my bunks last year...just can't seem to get my boat onto the trailer without alot of arm work. I know ir shouldn't be that hard to get the boat up there. I even bought new hardware anf wood, and adjusted things several times but still the same problem.

So now I am thinking about the cost of buying the hardware to turn my trailer over to rollers. I don't necessarily need to have brand new equipment, used will do as long as all parts are in working order. Any idea on where I can purchase needed parts, and how much it would cost? I live in the TC metro area.

Thanks!

You can remove your bunks and add rollers, depending on your trailer it shouldn't be very tough.

First of all check with same brand dealer, then lookup online to find better prices. Many trailers nowadays have the group of rollers bolted to frame, it's very easy to install them.

On a similar note, I would like to change mine from rollers to bunks. Anyone know if it is difficult to correctly set the bunks for the specific boat to be loaded?

Just get a spray can of pure silicone and spray the whole thing into the carpet. The bunks need to be dry. I do this once a year. Usually after fishing during the day so the bunks are dry. Before I load the boat I spray a whole can into the bunks carpet. Be careful. The boat can slide off just like it's on a roller trailer.You can't unhook the boat untill it's over the water.

I also spray the bunks with silscone and have no problem loading the boat then.
