      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 .

Build raised platforms on the bow and the stearn, like a Bass boat. That will give you all the storage you should need.
Just build a stick frame, like a house and then make a floor and side. Then make doors foor the floor, or you can buy pre-fab ones, carpet is good but will cost you some money for the good stuff wich will last, or you could go cheap with indoor outdoor from Menards.
For wood use 2X2 treated lumber for the framesand at least 1/2 inch treated plywwod for the deck, 3/4 might make the boat too heavy, remember to build some sort of support on the middle of the deck so it won't break when youre standing on it.
Look at some boats for ideas for storage areas, rod lockers, and stuff like that.
There is a place out in Stillwater that will do this type of work for you if you want to spend more money, I don't remember the name off hand but they do excelent work.
