I usually fly a 3' x 5' on my port antenna post. Go big or go home.

On the side of the fly bridge I have mounted the 13' extensions and the VHF sits on top of that. I think they are 1 1/2" round and sturdy. I attach the flag to that. I have an upper and lower mount on the sides so it keeps it tight and strong.

Dave,
How far to go? That debris looks a bit troublesome. I think I'd rather hit a lobster pot then a log

I made in before all the storms. Wow we're they intense I got to met the owners of that 70 Hat Willaway. I can't remember the owners name but he wasn't an admiral just a developer from NC. The captains name was Larry. Could you imagine hooking up with someone who needed a captain to pilot and maintain their vessel.

Left Demopolis about 7am. Same ole scenery. No logs but ya do have ta keep an eye out No where near as bad as pots. Most of the time the debrie is in the same area cause it will come threw the locks Unless there's a hard rain or your passing threw an area that is moving bardges that has stuff caught between you won't see much. And the rivers are pretty smooth. You develop an eye for the logs. I've heard of people hitting large debrie in the ocean that's either falling or thrown off the ships. Or left overs from Jersey .

Might be thinking about where you want to be Wed to Sun. River will be very busy due to holiday and I know our marina(Florence) full several nights due to local festival and fireworks show. Just a thought.

We re off to another day of river cruising. We had bubba do a drive by with his pontoon boat. These guys came up from behind and came close enough to touch the boat at about 20 mph. I didn't see um til it was to late. But I had my orange flare gun ready in case he tried to attack me with his deadly pontoon boat.
