It was a good effort, I would add the clapping smiley but it would look cheesy.
The moral of the story is, I think, that it takes a lot of effort to save the last tenner. At one point there were a dozen people ready to buy what is without doubt one of the finest bits of safety kit invented:-
Easy to use,
Long dormant life,
The last selling point is "good value" with a RRP of 260 quid these things are selling faster than McMurdo can make them AND they are yet to be made available is several big countries.
With the benefit of hind sight I would have gone for the MSS deal of 189 all inc. Maybe they could have been cajoled into giving away a free posing pouch? Who knows.
Anyway, well done to all concerned. To the other retailers, to the people who committed to buy and most of all to KY.
I doubt forum bulk-buys will ever work, but this one came pretty close.
