      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 Building

Hello all, I am wondering if anyone has any experience working with fiberglass or registering home-built watercraft. I've searched the past few pages in this forum, but found nothing. I will be starting construction on my first full size boat(a 16' flat bottom jon) this March, and hope to finish it sometime before June. Any and all tips, comments, or criticism is welcome, Thanks.

Registering a homemade boat is pretty straight forward. Go to your local deputy register office and tell them what you did and answer some questions about length, type and horsepower of motor, pay the fee and your set to go.

I would not use fiberglass for a jon boat, as the typical use for a jon is in shallow water with a good chance of impacting some rocks or logs. If your going to duck hunt out of it, a lighter hull is important if you ever get stuck or want to drag it up into some cover.
