      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 .

Which quick release bracket to get?

Recommended Posts

berfish

I bought a Minnkota Maxxum and I want to get a quick release bracket for it. I am familiar with the sliding type that have been around for about a decade. Now I have been told there is a composite bracket. I have seen a picture of them on the Thorn Brothers web page and in the Cabelas catalog. I dont know much about them. Are they sturdy? Does it release easily? How big compared to older type? What do you guys/gals that have this mounting system think? Thanks for any info.

I have the composite mounting bracket for my Powerdrive. It is mounted on my pontoon boat. The bracket works great! I had to get it levelled correctly (no big deal once I realized the problem) when I installed on top of the boat carpet, otherwise it was darn near impossible to remove or install the motor. I installed it at the beginning of last season and used it all summer. It works well on my pontoon deck because when the motor is removed (for cruising with a group)all it left was a plastic puck on the deck. I'd recommend it. It's a little more spendy than the metal, but leaves a much smaller (and less sharp edged) footprint when the motor is off. To me it's also a little easier to place the motor on, you just put it on top instead of sliding into place.

Go with the composite, I'll echo everything vermillionfox said. It's got a small puck and is easy to attach/detach. I've got a Maxxum and this is the route I went last year, no regrets.
