      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 .

Lund flat board seats

Recommended Posts

BillP

I need to replace the flat board seats on an old Lund boat. This boat sits uncovered on a lift in the summer and on it's trailer in a shed in the winter. I am told that the new treated plywood is a no no for aluminum boats. Is there some special kind of plywood and or finish that will provide durability?

Bill,

Treated lumber has changed again!

ACQ treated is out as the industry standard, the new product is treated with micronized copper.

This is copied from Universal Forrest Products web site:

Compatible with Aluminum

ProWood Micro can be placed in direct contact with aluminum building products

Micronized copper treatment was marketed in January of 2007 so there is still alot of ACQ in lumber yards and home centers. Make sure the piece of plywood is labled PTMC or has Micro somewhere on the little tag with the UPC# and it will be safe to use with aluminum.

The original seats were made out of marine grade plywood.

Expensive but the best way to go.

Paint with a spar varnish or good brand of exterior oil based paint on BOTH sides.
