      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 .

Decals

I bought an aluminum boat and the old decals are like petrified to it. What's the best way to get them off? Thanks

Heating up decals usually aids in the removal. Try a hair blow dryer or a heat gun. Aplastic scraper helps also.

Roz, I remodled my old boat last winter. Are you talking watercraft stickers or the brand name decals? I ground my alumacraft stickers off with a wire brush and then sanded the whole boat to repaint as a camo duck boat. I used a putty knife to scrape the registration stickers and numbers off. hope I could help.

For $4 bucks a bottle that stuff called Goo Gone really does the trick for me! Worth a try before taking a wire brush to any paint and metal. Maybe take a razor blade and gently score the decals first and let the "goo" seep in underneath it.

I tried the goo gone and I had zero results on removal..I stuck with the plastic razor and a little heat.

They were the old registaration/ID # stickers. I heated them up and scraped them off. I am planning on painting my boat camo this summer. Any advice would be great. It is a 14 foot Lund/silver aluminum boat. No paint on it. Thanks

Great, you got the decal/vinyl portion off. Most leave a portion of their glue/adhesive behind. The cheapest thing to use to get the glue off is mineral spirits or paint thinner, keeping a rag very wet, and a lot of elbow grease.
