    Default Looking for some help from AOD connections...

    I found an A-7 Buoy and retrieved it. I need to find a buyer that can actually use it. Any help is appreciated. The advert is in the Marketplace. Thank you in advance!

    All rigged up it weighs about 75lbs. It has a nice rope netting all around it. The weight is not the problem. It is the bulk that prevents one from just lifting it up and running around with it.
    As for donating this thing to a daycare center this buoy is unlikely to be useful! This thing could easily smoosh one of those munchkins and prove more dangerous than you might suspect if left to roll around freely. I'm not saying it couldn't be a lot of fun to push a 75lb. monster ball up the hill and watch it roll down again, BUT...gravity could really ruin somebody's day...

    Hang it in a tree and cut a big hole in the side.. .it would be like one of those cool 70's swing chairs. That is one large buoy.
