      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 .

Carpeted Bunks?

Recommended Posts

Bob Horn

I just bought a trailer for my canoe and I was going to change the bunks because I wanted them longer and on there side. I was wondering if it would matter if the bunks were carpeted or not. The canoe weighs 125 empty and loaded about 500 including me in it. What do you think?

Wont matter much at all but I would staple some carpet on for the heck of it. Staple on the under side of the wood of course.

the carpet does help in protecting the bottom.

Exactly.

It will remove any chance of scratches, bruises, and travel "rash".

You should use a marine grade of carpet on the bunks, you can buy it in rolls for that purpose, Regular carpet will rot from getting wet.

I replaced my bunks on my trailer a few years ago. I bought bunk carpet at cabela's in Owatonna back then. I don't think it was too expensive.

Whats the old saying, " an ounce of prevention is worth..."
