Inquiry* --* what flags (burgees, pennants, thongs,*etc.) do you fly when you are out and about on your boat?* How do you fly your flags if you have an arch?***** *Pics would be good.**** KJ

I fly the American flag from the radar arch, starboard side. That is as far aft as I can mount it without interferring with getting on and off the boat or being interferred with by the dingy.

I fly a courtesy flag from the bow pulpit when we are in Canada. We do not belong to any yacht club so I have no club burgee to fly.

Seahorse (Coot's builder)*burgee for knowing which way the wind is blowing, and the national flag to show my registry.* Have a couple of special flags for special occasions for flying from the spreaders.

RE: Flags

KJ, it would have been polite to show what you fly (rather than just take and no give.)

*I just*acquired the boat a couple of weeks ago. The boat is on the hard in SC having some work done on her. *I don't anticipate splashing her until Sept.

Right now, this is the only flag that I'm flying.

RE: Flags

One of my "special" flags is the "1st Place Vallejo Race" pennant the Coot's builder Bill Kimley won.

RE: Flags

US standard ensign aft 3x5 and on a fiberglass whip at the bow a comissioning pennant .

This is the blue portion of the flag , used by US Capitol ships , as the boat was a USN boat.

Not strictly correct , but the whip is trimmed to show out air height for going under bridges.

Margaritaville flag on the bow. American flag on the stern, Texas flag on starboard spreader. My last Trawler World burgee wore out and I didn't replace it.

RE: Flags

I usually fly the US flag aft, sometimes the Monk owners flag MOA (in nautical flag letters) and MTOA (turtle) off the spreaders. I don't fly them often, they make a heck of a rattle or flapping noise very noticable at night, I bring the US flag in at sunset.
The MOA and MTOA flags got a bit grungy during our last cruise, I brought them home to wash and now, after washing them and putting them away I can't find them, happens all the time, I'm sure they'll show up sometime.
Sorry, no pics on hand.

Flags

US Stars and Stripes at stern, club or squadron pennant depending on activity on bow, USPS Ensign or officers flag on starboard mast. *In this picture the Bahamas courtesy flag is on starboard mast. *Sometimes a private signal on port mast.

RE: Flags

I'm lazy about flags. We fly a large US Ensign at the stern, on a line dropped down from our boom (If I remember to put it up).

If we are out on a yacht club rendezvous, we fly that burgee.

That's not saying much these days.

The Pony Express then would probably be faster than the USPS now. It takes three days here for a letter from Deer Isle to get to Stonington (6 miles). No joke.
