Bow Rail Flag Staff help

I am having a hard time finding a bow rail flagstaff mount that will fit the larger diameter stainless steel bow rail from 1973. I have a Marine Trader 34 and everthing I have found is too small. I believe the rail is 1.25 inches in diameter if not larger. Does anyone have a solution or source?
Thanks!

Amazon! Actually, they are available from Taylor-Made, so probably other sources also. They have a size to fit 1.25 inch railing. P

Sea Breeze, I use a Perko rod holder. The teak jack staff will need some half hitches to make it fit snug.

I just measured my rail, itís 1Ē , for 1 1/4Ē you could replace the two Perko clamp bolts with longer bolts to fit your rail. Mine have been in place over ten years bow and stern, typical Perko quality.

Try twice the vertical length of your burgee. I like a burgee that has material light enough to give you a good read on wind direction and strength for docking and anchoring.

If you want a guide to burgee sizes, look here at the Power Squadron website:

Flag and Etiquette Committee Flag FAQ

However, the burgee you want may not come in different sizes ....
