I'm looking for....

9 posts in this topic

A little hand held thing that has a vacuum cleaner brush inside that you roll back and forth on your boat carpet. It was about 8 inches long and 3 inches wide. It picked up sand crawler bedding awesome. Then you would just pull the top(plastic cover) off, empty it and keep going. A friend of mine had one this weekend and it did a great job of cleaning the boat in 5 min. The name on the top of the cover said "fluggie" but have done a search on google and came up with nothing. Anybody know where I could pick one of these up? He found it at a thrift shop for a quarter and it looked about 20 years old. Thanks, Joe

minneman, after looking at the HSOforum, the bristles look like it was in this item I used. 1 round little brush inside a plastic container. If u can picture one of those wax worm boxes that have have the liner in it, very similar to those but with a brush inside. Thanks for the site.

I have exactly what you are talking about. I found it at the boat show a number of years ago. It's an incredible tool in a boat to clean up messes. I will look at mine and see if I can find any info on it for ya, but if I recall there is no identification on it.

I found them at qvc.com and then google portable hand sweepers. Don Aslett is the product, they are 22 for 3. They work excellant for boat carpets and i'm sure I'll use it in the fish house as well.

what you are looking for is a fluppi. Google fluppi brush and you will find it. About 5 bucks apiece. I have one in my boat and it works great to pick up worm bedding spills, sand, etc.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
