      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 .

Bought a Boat.. Good buy or not?

Recommended Posts

Kylersk

I've still got 2 weeks to cancel the buy.

I picked up a 2000 crestliner 1750 sport fish with a 2000 Evenrude 115 Ram Ficht motor and a ez-loader trailer. The boat appeared to be in nice shape, for a 7 year old boat. The only marks I noticed on the underside were black streaks that appear to be from the rollers. Didnt notice any scratches at all on the underside, prop or scag. Their service department checked the engine and boat out and gave it a good bill of health. I believe the compression ratings for each cylinder were 130?

It has an Eagle accura locater and a Minkota 65# trust 24volt trolling motor.

Paid 10150 + tax and license.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Nice boat, and good buy!

Hey Kyler: I think you did just fine on your boat deal!! You are going to have a lot of fun this summer. I would take it in for a professional servicing. Check wheel bearing packs on the trailer. Check batteries etc. and do all of this SOON so you're ready to go.

Don't worry whether you did the right thing. Seems to me you did just fine and bought a nice boat package.

This message of support is from a guy who can't even remember how many boats he's owned. shocked.gif

      I checked a small lake in Arden Hills after work yesterday. Measured 3-4”. Should be ready for me to actually fish next time.
