      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 .

Wheelhouse flooring help

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how the wheelhouse manufacturers put down the rubber coin flooring so it won't ripple?

I'm on my third attempt to get my g- flooring ( rubber coin ) to lay flat with no ripples. I've tried laying it out in the sun, installing it on a warm day, stapling the edges, the flooring is not touching anything except of course the catch covers, which are screwed on top of the flooring. I get the same results every time. Should I try adhesive? I've been avoiding that because as others have mentioned, it may be a bitch to remove, and I have read that it may not adhere to green treated material. Could I be having this problem because I have a Yetti, and the aluminum expands and contracts more? The house color is black and it does get very hot inside during the summer. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated before I give up and find another type of flooring.

You might try posting this over on HSO as a lot of the DIY guys use that too. :2c:

Sounds frustrating.  What does the manufacturer recommend?  There should be some instructions available.

The polyvinyl will expand and contract.  If your tight to the walls you can count on bulging and wrinkles. 

If you want it wrinkle free you'll have to use the adhesive which I personally wouldn't have a problem doing. I'd also curb the flooring at the walls to keep the floor water tight.   For your flooring and treated plywood use  GFMAO4GAL
