I got burned out on going to meetings from when I was working. I am a life member for retired submarine sailors. I joined out of respect for a chief I sailed with, with the understanding, I would never attend meetings. I dont fly their burgee. I am also a life member of a professional arborist organization, out of respect for the over 20 years of being a professional forester, with the understanding, I would never go to meetings. I am a life member of a maritime museum bearing the family name, in Detroit. I dont fly their burgee. I have never gone to any of their meeting nor attended their formal dances. I belonged to a rather exclusive yacht club in Detroit and never flew their burgee. I dont even fly the family burgee.
Now someone suggests I fly the TF burgee? HA HA
Dont feel bad, I dont wear t-shirts with advertising on them or cute sayings.
I do not contribute to any non-profit or 'for profit' organizations where the CEO earns more than I do.
The only organization I contribute to is the Salvation Army. Each year, I buy 10 or 15 bikes for them to give to kids at Christmas time.
Finally, I buy hams and turkeys at Easter and Christmas for a VERY small church to give to the needy with the understanding, my name is never to be associated with the gifts. LOL I dont go to their church services either.
I am just a grumpy old man. pfpfpf
The only flag I fly proudly is the US flag. I am a proud citizen of the USA and a Veteran.
NEVER NEVER NEVER tell a Veteran, when the flag passes, he cannot salute the flag. Yup, maybe it's not 'correct' but, Veterans just do it. I guess you have to be Veteran to understand.

Dan - i'm a USSVI lifer as well- didn't know they had a burgee. I can't concieve of what that would look like.

I'm assigned to the local SubVet base - never attended a meeting. Got conned into attending a USSVI/Subvets joint meeting. Great to talk and drink with the WWII guys. Good to see some folks I hadn't seen in decades. I think that was the last USSVI function I attended. No animus - just not a joiner, I guess.

One of the reasons I like TF as much as I do is NO MEETINGS.

I would guess Dolphins. Silver or Gold.

I would fly one. The first one I flew was the MTOA. It lasted 2 years. Got pretty tore up from the wind. I’m now flying a palm Coast yacht club one. I would fly a tf forum one.

ID:	81783Please excuse the rough look, just found a website that lets you design a very basic burgee. I used red and black because it’s the color of the existing TF logo. Also the font is as close as they had ( but the F is f’ed up) The white line I had to finger draw on might represent a rope detail. I hope there’s someone out there with a better design program than what I was able to do on my iPad at the moment.

Hate to say it... But if "TF" were on the burgee as a stand alone item... that acronym may make many folks think way different meanings than "Trawler Forum"! As one of two lead letters "F" can too often bring up darkly connotative, universal meanings to many persons.

But, if TF were to be recognizable within the base-outline of a boat on the burgee... that might attract quite a few requests for explanation.

Sooo... I say let those that are artists on TF have a go at it!

I'd fly one. Our Tollycraft burgee has seen better days; as the Tolly forum has also!

I do dig Trawler Forum... for many reasons!

+1 for Rochepoint. I think the logo works well on the burgee.

Sister-site Cruiser Forum offered a burgee with tiny signal flags signaling "C" and "F". Purchased same but never received recognition. Maybe because we've a motorboat while the cruiser forum is mostly sailboats. Whatever. Nevertheless, a readily-recognizable Trawler Forum burgee would be welcome. Note burgee on port spreader.

I'd suggest that anyone interested in submitting a design review the recommendations from the Burgee Shop

They have some pretty good info, Do's & Don'ts and sample designs.
It looks like they will review and comment on potential designs and provide a service to register a burgee design once it's completed.
Both seem like reasonable steps after we have a design candidate.

I say screw the burgee. Burgees are for Yacht Clubs. Burgees make lots of noise.

I think we should fly something different and distinctive, but each a unique expression of its owner.

I vote for windsocks! They don't flap in the wind, they're unique and they can be great wind direction and strength indicators. I've been flying mine for several years and it's been a welcome replacement to a burgee. I never intended it that way but that's what happened in the end.

I suppose there are plenty of folks who prefer the flag due to its legacy...we always did it that way. But I bet once you try a windsock, you'll never go back!

All I did was add a screw and washer on the top of the burgee for a pivot point. No special design needed...make it your own. Whattayathink?

Al, you're unique, and I was awaiting your windsock response. Nevertheless, maybe you can start something and provide a sock distinctive for trawler guys. I'm game.

Hi Al

The pilot in you spill forth. LOL

Make your windsock entry good looking and distinctive, re TF.

That's my recommendation!
