      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 .

Boat paint

Recommended Posts

Bobcatbeej

I have a small fiberglass duck boat that I am refinishing. After I'm done sanding and patching and sanding some more I need to paint the outside. What should I use? I'm looking for a flat tan that I can camo spray over, then a solid top coat that resists beating and scratching. Any ideas are appreciated.

thanks, Blake

Generally speaking, high gloss = more durability on fiberglass boat paint. This is not a good combination for a duck boat. Marine varnish is fairly tough (and expensive), but takes forever to dry. A satin would probably be recommended since this is a duck boat, if you really want to go over the camo with a clear. I would be very careful applying over multiple brown/camo paints, however. Adhesion is probably an issue. If it were me (and I have professional experience in the boat industry and the paint industry, whatever that is worth) I would prep your entire surface very well (clean and 250 sanded) and put on the best satin/flat finish paint they have in a light brown color. Maybe ask a local autobody shop to make a paint recommendation, or better yet, have them paint it for you. Use spray paint to make the camo over the top if necessary. Just my two cents.
