      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 .

Waterski Pylon

I've been looking for a waterski pylon for sometime now, but haven't been able to find any on the net for a decent price. Does anyone know where to find one of these? If not, has anyone ever made one? If you're not sure what they look like, I found this picture here

For you skiers out there, have you found any other way to get the rope off the back of the boat? Thanks for any help!

Buy a ski boat grin.gif Just kidding. I'm assuming you checked Overtons. They are a bit spendy, but they have to be made pretty solidly considering the forces that you will be exerting on them. We normally just ski with a bridle attached to the back of the boat (haven't found a pylon that will work on our boat). It's not exactly ideal, but it works just fine.

What model of boat are u trying to ski behind. I ski behind a lund pro v and just use a yoke or bridal system, I would check overtons as well. I dont think you will find alot of used ones out there, as most boats doing the occasional recreational skiing are running the runabouts.

Bartswatersports is another option similar to Overton's. I would definitely prefer a pylon over the bridal system.

I bought one through Hannay's in Mpls a few years ago. It is one that you can adjust the height on the initial install. I need this option to get over my outboard as it stands tall with the 25" deep transom. It did cost about $275.00 at the time. Maybe check to see if your local dealer could get one cheaper. Also says not to pull tubes with the ski poles but when we installed ours we pulled the floor up and bolted it through so we do not have to worry about screws pulling up.

Thanks for the replies! Glad to see some fellow skiers out there smile.gif It sounds like I'll just have to find a good pylon somewhere, so I'll keep looking! Is there any need to be concerned about stress on the boat, either where the base is mounted or on the side arm mounts? Thanks!
