View Full Version : Official (unofficial) 2010 Moomba Coolie Buy Thread...

Back by popular demand, I will be arranging another buy for the famed Moomba Suction Coolies.

Cost will be $4.50 shipped per coolie.

Here is a link (http://moomba.com/msgboard/showthread.php?t=6088&highlight=coolie) to last years buy thread, I guess as a reference to show I'm not a scammer, lol.

Available Colors: Red, Silver, Blue, Green, Black & Yellow.

Pictures of actual coolies: (additional pictures in 2nd post)

http://moomba.com/msgboard/attachment.php?attachmentid=4474&stc=1&d=1267117431

http://moomba.com/msgboard/attachment.php?attachmentid=4471&stc=1&d=1267117402

http://moomba.com/msgboard/attachment.php?attachmentid=4472&stc=1&d=1267117412

The deadline for purchase will be Friday, March 26th. It took about a 1-2 weeks for them to be printed and shipped last time, so I expect that everyone will recieve them by mid-April, just in time for boating season!

Payment can be sent by PayPal or check via mail.



EDIT: Sales are closed, and order has been submitted. I will let everyone know when they are completed and shipping!

Not much profit margin;

To get the coolies to my door they cost $3.15 each, plus packaging and shipping to the buyers I figure I should be right at break even (last time was more expensive because I had to pay for the screen set up and the per-unit was higher.)

Its a labor of love, the boat stuff is for fun - work is for money :)

ian ashton
02-26-2010, 11:25 AM
Up to 32 :)

Ian, great Job.
I still have my six. hopefully Profit = a couple extra free coolie's for Ian

Do they make them for the slim cans, seems like Ultra and Heiny light end up in the boat.

Hey Ian,

Thanks again. Do you have the Vector(?) for the ROO that's on the coolie or do you know where I can get it. I would like to get some stickers made and if I had the vector than I would have to pay the extra for the screen set up.

I don't have the vector, but a buddy of mine has a vinyl plotter and I had him cut me some Roo logos for my side windows. If you want, let me know the size and color and I'll get you a price.

Up to orders for 82 so far!

So far Blue is leading the race with 25 orders, followed by Black at 17, Silver for 15, 11 Yellow, 10 Red, and 4 Green.

Shipping to UAE is pretty brutal, it will be about $5 additional per unit, using USPS shipping (cheapest way I could figure). If there is a better way to ship let me know; they are very light, but about 3"x3"x4" each.

So one more time, how much to Canada? I see 501 ordered some and he is just north of me??????

ian ashton
02-28-2010, 03:32 PM
Canada should be the same cost as US; it will just take longer I think (I seem to remember last time there not being much difference is us and Canada.)

Log in to your PayPal account and click the 'Send Money' button, then type in my email address (ianashton@gmail.com)

If you are having trouble figuring it out just let me know how many you want, the color, and your email address and I can send you a PayPal invoice to make it easier.

Gus; my home lake ( Cassl Lake (http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&source=hp&q=cass+lake,+waterford+mi&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Cass+Lake&z=14) ) is about an hour and a half North of Toledo. I'd estimate 'essebeck' is another 2 1/2 hours North of that.
