      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 .

Dumb Designs For Outdoor Equipment. Screen Window Installed In Roof of Tent

Recommended Posts

I just go back from a week long fishing trip to Canada. My fishing buddy has a truck camper, however he can rattle the walls with his snoring so I usually bring my tent and sleep there for a peaceful night sleep. This year he bought a new tent and offered to bring it for me to use. When we pitched the tent I couldn't believe my eyes. There was screen window in the roof. The flap to close it was on the inside of the tent which meant that all the water would pour off the roof and flow through the screen and into the flap which would then overflow into the inside of the tent. There was no fly included. I tarped it, but I got a good laugh about the design. I thought it would be fun to hear about any other dumb designs of fishing related or outdoor equipment.

I just bought a new cheap watch and the most important feature for me was that the face lit up when a button is pressed. Well, when you press the button the numbers light up but not the hands.

The tent camper we traded this summer must have come from the sunbelt design academy. The vinyl side panels were dark-smoke colored. On a sunny day, you needed the lights on inside. It didn't seem like a big deal in the showroom. And they only came in dark. We replaced a damaged panel and had no other option.

I bought a tent for my son with the window on top but the tent came with a fly

I have an older colmen lantern that has the cleaning apature inside the globe. I belive you would light it the spin the apature then put the globe on with out breaking the mantels. Got it at a garage sale for 2 bucks thought it was cool.

If it was seamsealed and the zippers couldn't leak I odn't see how water would pour into thte inside of the tent.....

ANyway, I was in a friends pop-up camper a couple weeks ago and they burnt some food on the stove. I told him to open the roof vent and he said there wasn't one!! I looked in side and didn't find one, the only thing was to turn on the over the stove hood fan which stood about 3 feet lower than the roof. Nice design.

The flap for the window was about 3' X 5" rectanglewitht the flap on the inside of the tent. It was stitched on the bottom side and only had zippers on the right and the left sides. The top side or side close to the top beam of the tent was open. Water would have hit the roof drained down to the screen fall into the flap and then fill up and drain into the tent out of the unclosed flap.

I bought a very popular walleye boat that has the rod locker in the floor but it won't accept name brand rods becuase the guides are to large and therefore will not fit in the rod sleeves.

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
