      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 .

Swing toungue question...

I just picked up a Skeeter ZX1775 with Skeeter swing-tongue trailer. (The tongue breaks between the boat and the crank.) Granted, I'm still figuring things out, but...when I go to reconnect the tongue, it's really been a struggle to get it back together so that pins/holes align. The bow of the boat hits the roller, which leaves the holes anywhere from 1 inch to just one-eighth of an inch off of alignment. Any tips on how to help this go back together easier would be appreciated. (Previous owner did not use the swing tongue.) SO far I've tried lubing the entire mechanism. just cranking the snot out of it (bad idea) and even releasing the stern straps thinking the boat might slide back enough...none helped a great deal. Thanks for any tips! confused.gif

I am not familiar with the type of winch stand on that trailer, but, if possible could you move it back slightly? Say move the boat back an inch or so on the trailer and hopefully relieve the pressure on the bow stop. As I think about it, that doesn't seem like it would help. The winch stand moves with the swing portion of the tongue? If thats the case the only solution would not have the bow tight against the stop or fashion some sort of lever attached to the tongue and use it to get some leverage on the tongue to make line up easier.

I believe what is happening is you crank the boat up tight to the roller, sometimes even lifting the boat a little on the roller, then once you break it the boat settles back down and the tongue won't come back in place. Cure is to move boat back a little each time before you break the tongue, which if you are on bunks could take a little umph on your part.
