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

Cost will be $4.50 shipped per coolie.(US Only, PM me for internation shipping quote)

New for this years buy is the addition of the Coolie Flotation Device, which is an extra $0.50 per coolie. Just let me know if you want to include these in your order and add $0.50 to the cost of each.

Here is are links to previous years group buys: 2009 (http://moomba.com/msgboard/showthread.php?t=6088&highlight=coolie), 2010 (http://www.moomba.com/msgboard/showthread.php?t=10236&highlight=2010+coolie), and Coolies in Action (http://www.moomba.com/msgboard/showthread.php?t=11680&highlight=coolies+action)

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

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

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

The deadline for purchase will be Friday, March 25th 2011. It takes 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.

PayPal: ianashton@gmail.com

PM or email me for my mailing address if you want to send a check.

Ian,

What does the coolie flotation device look like?

Thanks for setting this up!

Orders are streaming in!

I'm not sure what it looks like; never seen the flotation device in real life. Here is a link to the product site:

do the flotation coolies look the same as the suction coolies

ian ashton
03-01-2011, 07:46 PM
They are the same, the flotation is simply a piece that fits into the coolie :)

I don't suppose you ordered any extras...

ian ashton
04-15-2011, 02:19 PM
Actually, yes, I did!

Minimum order was 144, and only sold 100, so I've got several extras :)

Ian,

Sorry I'm late to the party. I'll take 4 of the blue ones if you have that many. Let me know where to paypal the $$. I assume shipping is extra. My zip is 97224.

Thanks!

Do they come with the floaty inserts? Or do you have any extra's of those "floating" around?

ian ashton
04-21-2011, 10:30 PM
Yep, I got the floats!

ian ashton
04-24-2011, 01:28 PM
THEY ARE HERE! I've got the first 15 or so orders packaged up and ready to ship, and I'll have the rest done this evening so they go out Monday.

One small snafu with the Flotation Devices - the manufacturer didn't see that I included them in my order sheet, so I have to re-order them. No worries, I will ship the coolies now, and ship out the flotation devices as soon as they arrive. I'm sorry for the mix-up!

Ian,
Got my coolies in the mail today!!! Wow, they are fantastic and the silver looks great in my new boat!! Again thanks for putting this together, it's a nice custom touch and I am very appreciative.

Mark

ps I ordered the floats directly from the mfg and they work well too.

ian, u said u haven't received the flotation devices yet, but will send them out when you receive them correct?

ian ashton
04-29-2011, 02:49 PM
Yes sir, that is exactly correct. The manufacturer indicated that they were expecting their supply to come in early next week, and thus would send out the 100 that I ordered as soon as they get them.

It has come to my attention that I must have incorrectly input weights, (I suspect that I didn't 'clear' my scale before weighing) causing the postal service to request payment for postage upon delivery from the recipient. IF THIS HAPPENED TO YOU PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP SO I CAN REFUND YOU THE DIFFERENCE! So far I think it was only 1 package, so hopefully it was just a fat finger-ing mistake on my part, but if not don't be shy, let me know :)

Thanks, and sorry for the confusion if this has happened to you!

Ian,
Just wanted to post a follow up, these are awesome. Yesterday as I was coming in off the lake, my neighbor flagged me down to check out my new ride. As they were looking at my boat they noticed the huggies and inquired as to where I got them. I told them how you put the order together and they were quite impressed. I posted a photo of one of them in action in the bow of my boat yesterday. These things really suck....lol they stay right where you want them. Again my many thanks for helping me customize my new ride....nice job

They are just like little foam tubes that fit in the bottom lip.

moombahighrider
05-14-2011, 11:06 PM
Davinci, my understanding is that they are an insert that goes in the bottom of the coolie to make it float. I have not received mine yet but that is my understanding. I have been known to be wrong about some things so take that info with a grain of salt.

davinci
05-15-2011, 08:01 PM
