What would be even more fun would be to come up with a burgee for the OTDE forum. I cannot imagine.
OTDE Burgee: One wide open eye with long eyelashes next to a hand giving middle finger salute!

Where would you fly a TF burgee? If flying a burgee from the bow, I use the builder-provided Seahorse Marine silk flag. I've occasionally displayed the CF burgee from the port spreader (already shown in a previous post, #31.) Common practice here is for sailboats hoisting their club burgee from the starboard spreader. On special occasions, I hoist a yellow "don't tread on me" flag from the starboard spreader.

I can probably find room on the mast for another burgee. One thought would be a neon color - yellow, lime green, blue, ?? something that from across the river, would be noticeable.
A few years ago, watching AIS targets in a rain storm, I was passed by Ted on OC Diver. I had not met him before but his AIS prompted a series of radio calls and tied to the same dock that evening. A burgee might show other TFer's along the way.

Never really considered this a "burgee"... but, if you look on white center mast [between the two bimini tops] there is a black n' white skull and cross bones "Pirate" Flag at rest that our daughter gave us! Gotta love that girl!

BTW: I may be mistaken, however, I am under the impression that a true "bimini" flag needs to be on foremost bow peak or most forward center portion of bow rail.


The rest are signal flags.

Yes. Would you then like to be addressed as "Bif" or "Skipper" ?

Skip

Funny aside...for those who remember Grey Poupon mustard tv commercials from the 70's and 80's.

We had been traveling by sea kayak for a couple months (think disheveled & scruffy) and paddled past a 50-ish foot yacht when a freshly showered, trimmed and coiffed man in ironed slacks and white sweater came on deck to say hello. I looked up and said in a silky London accent, "Pardon me. Have you any Grey Poupon?"

His head snapped back a fraction and said something like, "Yes. Give me a minute." I laughed and told him it was a joke and paddled off leaving him with a bit of confusion on his face.

I say put about 20 names of different anchors on the burgee, but which one should be first and which one last

Reminds me of my 12th grade science teacher when he got pissed off!

Which I loved to get him to the point of... just so we all could laugh at his big jowls and gums flapping! And, yes... he still passed me for the year; but not by much! - LOL

How about a single stack with diesel smoke billowing out to match our "stinkpot" reputation?

My gasoline powered Tolly's finely tuned, clean burning Mercruiser engines taint no stink pots! Well... at lease not too awfully much, anyway - LOL

Greetings,
Mr. FW. Perhaps it's time for you to have your injectors serviced or, perish the thought, time for a rebuild on your engines. Our 2 Lehmans and one Onan do not smoke.

How about we al just hoist an old impeller that has been run dry for a bit? I think the good vanes vs the busted off ones would keep it aimed into the wind.

RTF, not to hijack or derail, which FL's do you have? 135's?
