As GM would say:

You want a reaction... I'll give you a reaction...

Why do you try making my face photos the butt of all your jokes; when, I'd much rather you used a photo of me patting that gal over there's Butt!!

If I fly a burgee, does that mean I have to tie white sweaters around my neck and call my wife, Bubbles?

Sure everyone knows this but I ordered a flag recently and the standard method is printing one side and pushing the ink so that it bleeds through to the other side giving the mirror image. Or...you can up the cost by another 50% or so and get a double sided with a true imprint on both. Personally I dislike the one sided versions. should be readable/the same on both.

The quality flags & burgees I've seen are nylon panels zigzag stitched to the background similar to Janet's CF example.
They will stand up to Wx much better than printed but any complex designs or text pretty much has to be printed (or embroidered which adds $)

The burgee would probably be significant for habitual habitual Trawler Forum users if it was included in the banner.
...
Those tiny signal flags within the Cruiser Forum burgee are nearly useless/unrecognizable since they are so small.

Let's face it... flying a burgee simply constitutes a relatively unimportant "me too" item; e.g. I belong to this or I like this or that - sort of like wearing a jacket with school name and logo when in HS. Then again, in an abstract manner but much more importantly than a burgee - so is flying the American Flag, which I not only love to fly, but being an American also feel pretty much obligated to do so!


Plenty of good boats and good boaters don't sport a burgee. That said... I guess because there was always a burgee on my family's boats while I grew up I'd simply feel my boat not fully dressed without one.


If TF burgee suits my fancy I'll purchase and fly it. Otherwise I'll simply keep my Tollycraft [although getting old and dirty] burgee on front peak of the bow rail.

Well I ran into a similar situation that you guys speak about just last weekend. The fellow had seem a "similar" boat that was docked in a local marine on the Trawler forum and wondered if the boat was the same. LOL, But anyway you got to start somewhere. And the embroidery ones are much nicer. And of course this does create a problem with doing both sides the same on one panel. Anyway, here is my introductory offering, and it uses the initials "TF", to my eye anyway. And it can be read on both sides. You can have any shape panel and this works out okay. And of course it goes with the red in the good ole red, white and blue in my country's flag that I swore allegiance to long ago and still fly it on all trips.

Just a little fun and some minor league tribalism is all. I'd fly one simply to wait for the day when someone waves at me on the water flying the same. Just a little fun is all.

What would be even more fun would be to come up with a burgee for the OTDE forum. I cannot imagine.

This might be the best choice. IF you make it complicated, a double sided burge will need to be twice as thick. This one, they lined up the flags so they will only be double thick for the actual flag graphics and the URL.
