      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 .

Where can I get snap on boat cover made?

Anyone know of a place in Central/Western MN that can put together an after market boat cover that snaps on the boat? I would need the snaps put on my boat as well. Have a 16' Lund Predator. Thanks for any help/advice.

canvas craft in ramsey is a good place to go. i had a 18 foot lund pro v that i had them put a cover with snaps on and it turned out really nice. i think it was around $500.

I used Canvas Plus in Rogers. Top quality and it looks great. I would suggest waiting for the boat or sportsman shows. I got a 10% discount at the show.

Shinde,

A number of years ago I had a snap cover put on my Predator by a company in West Fargo (sorry I'm forgetting the companies name).

Just a couple of words of caution! Mine shrunk a ton after getting wet then sun, etc. and slowly but surely the snaps started to pop and not be able to reach the bottom part of the snap. Ended up ripping the cover up and going in the garbage. I'd also recommend at least three boards as supports--mine only had two and I think the third would have provided a little more slack for the shrinkage issue.

Also had to always take the front seat out which was more a pain than an issue.

I loved the snap cover until the snaps started to go and my boss had a similar cover from the same West Fargo company on his Crestliner and had no issues so I wouldn't go against this but just want to help if I can.

Alot of it has to do with the quality of the canvas each particular shop uses. Our personal boat that we have up north has one of these types of covers on it and it sits out in the weather year around. We've had this cover going on ten years now and it's still as strong as the day we installed it. Also, we put in four bows under the canvas which really helps the water shed off. Just ask around with the different companies about the type of canvas that they use.
