      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 .

Boat Painting

Recommended Posts

Coach1310

2 years ago I bought a 16' Alumacraft from a friend of my Dad's. He purchased a cabin and the boat was part of the deal. Here is the thing. The boat was hardly ever used and inside is in mint condition, however the boat was left tied to the dock each summer with no bumpers, etc. How much does it cost to get a boat repainted? Where can I have this done? I got a great deal on the boat and with a new paint job I would be set for many years! Any help would be great.

I've had a repair and painting done at George's Repair in East Bethel. I was happy with their work.

Just call a boat repair shop, describe the boat, ask them to give you a ballpark price over the phone, add 20% and you'll be close.

A friend of mine had his Crestliner repainted at the local auto body shop. It looks brand new and he ordered the new decals so it looks like a 2005 Crestliner. He had it painted at Autoworks Body and Paint in Starbuck, MN

I bought an older Lund 16 foot aluminum boat this spring. The paint was all faded and scratched. I didn't think it would be worth the money to have someone repaint an older boat, so I did it myself. I sanded down the old paint, primed it, used the auto spray paint stuff and put a couple coats of clear coat on top of that. Looks great.

After at least 50 trips this year, the paint is still holding up fine.
