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.

Here you go! Yep the Hoky works awesome, I have used several of them over the years. Might even be able to find one on hsolist or something.

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.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
