Drop N Fill is manufactured at Moeller Marine in Sparta, TN.
Fans who know Cobe (The Mikker) Mikacich as a wakeboarding pioneer and award-winning coach may be surprised to learn that he is also an inventor. A few years back, he created HANGTYTE, the only patented boat cover suspension device. Next, he figured out a way to simplify fueling ski boats. After he developed the DROP N FiLL concept, he began the six-year process of patenting the device and finding the right company to manufacture it. “The first thing I look for in a partnership is a person or organization who shares our values,” Cobe explains. “I knew from the start that I wanted to work with Moeller. I’m familiar with their products and I like the way they do business.”
Bill Brackney, who heads up Moeller product development, is excited about the fueling device and the collaboration. “We’re proud to be working with Cobe and Tarah. They understand innovation. Lots of people have ideas but making them happen is what counts. And making them happen is the essence of innovation.”
Moeller Division President Doug Linder agrees. “We are thrilled to be working with Cobe and Tarah. When some people talk about winning attitude, they focus on winning. At Moeller, we focus on attitude. We are the best we can be, day in and day out. To the Moeller Team, that’s success. That’s winning.”
