      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 .

Splash Guards on Smaller Boats

Recommended Posts

zelek

I'm thinking of putting some Wave Wackers on my 16 foot Alumacraft Lunker, but I'm being advised by the guys from there that you need to put a block on the transom between the outboard & the trolling motor. It has something to do with the lack of space needed for the splash guards when they cut -out for the trolling motor and this apparently makes it stronger (or do-able anyway).

Have any of you guys done this and are you happy with the outcome??

I'm not exactly sure what you're referring to but I have a 16 foot lund rebel with a transom trolling motor (probably similar to your boat)...and I called up White Caps (site sponser) and talked to the guy there who sent me exactly what I needed and I could'nt be happier. They were reasonably priced, on my doorstep within a couple days, and easy to install. They look good and more importantly work good. Easy to take on and off if you want too. I'd suggest giving them a call to get their input.

I guess they aren't a sponsor anymore I can't find them on the sponsor page anymore. But they do have a website and you can pretty much find any info you need there. I had a set of these on my last boat and they work very good.

Well.....after watching this wind day after day, I decided to just drive down to Miltona today (it's raining again anyway so what the heck?) and have the guy at Walleye Masters put on a set. Man..do they look nice!! The ones you made look great too Minneman...just not sure I have the patience or the tools or the know-how to build them to look that good!! grin.gif
