      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 floor in older 16' Alumacraft

Recommended Posts

I bought an early 1980's 16' Alumacraft deep hall boat & trailer. The boat once had a floor and steering column. It has been used as a tiller boat and floor is gone. How and what materials are needed to build a floor? How can I find a replacement steering counsel and hardware/cables? I appreciate your help. Cherndog

Check with Val on the used steering column and counsil. He may very well have something that will work for you. Check out some of the old threads in this forum or the archive relating to boat floors. In a nutshell, though, when we install a floor, we have had the best results with the BC grade plywood, usually a half inch thick. Cut additional runners to go under the floor to reduce flexing, and treat the topside with a good quality carpet glue or fiberglass resin. This will prevent water damage. We're going on 25 years and haven't had any come back yet using this method so I'm assuming it must work pretty well.

I actually have a console from an aluminum boat, it's not alumacraft but should work fine.

I am trying to get it out of here at $ 50.00, includes steering helm, wheel, and cable.

Come and pick it up, it will be an easy install....
