      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 .

Cleaning water spots

Recommended Posts

***I mean "SPOTS" not "Sports"*** confused.gif

I'm trying to get the windshield and motors on my boat cleaned as spotless as possible, but have a few water spots on each that I'm having difficulty getting off.

Any suggestions or potions to get rid of them? I've heard that a vinegar/water mix will do the trick, but I'm hesitant on doing that since I've no idea if that would hurt or damage them.

Thanks in advance.

I've used the vinegar/water "potion" and it gets the job done. I've never had any problems with it doing damage.

Thanks bassman. I'll give it a test try tomorrow. I've also got some carwash cleaner and might try that too.

Basscatcher-

I worked at Minnetonka Boatworks in the early 90's. All of the boats were cleaned with a vinegar/water solution. Weather it was a new boat delivery or the Twins player Chillie Davis's 35" Wellcraft docked at the marina. We sprayed it on all of the surfaces, vinyl, plastic, glass, fiberglass and the list goes on. No other cleaning products were used in cleaning other than a vaccum or boat wax.

I wouldn't worry one bit about using vinegar/water.

Clean away!

Thanks again for the Strikemaster blades, haven't found enough ice to try them out yet! I'll keep looking.

I use a product called Nautical Ease Water Spot Remover. Spay it on, hose it off. Works better than vinegar. I got it at Champion Auto,Ken

Windex or Simple Green works well for the whole boat.

I mixed a 50/50 vinegar/water solution and it cleaned off all of the water spots and general Lake Minnetonka slime I have been struggling to get off.....and all without scrubbing! It works great! Thanks for the tip.

I just did mine with nautical ease (it's also biodegradeable) and my boat doesn't smell like a pickle tongue.gif
