Nope, not a good strategy. My wife once purchased one, thinking it was just a pretty rainbow flag. We were in Key West at the time....

Re: Sometimes I Want to Be Alone !

How about a sign,
"Professional Question Answerer on board enjoying his Vacation".

or "Will answer questions for beer"

"Caution, hull paper thin, you break it, you buy it."

"Company is like fish, they both stink after 3 days, fish have been on board for 4 days."

or a sign that says, "I enjoy being crazy, it makes people leave me alone."

"Please do not disturb, busy cleaning guns now after going postal"

Like the sign I used to put out in a boat yard I worked at saying "F_CK OFF I'm working" in an attempt to keep the have-a-chat's at bay

When people approached me in my nice quiet areas with a view to anchoring nearby I found loud "Devil Music" worked well at moving them on.

Re: Sometimes I Want to Be Alone !

I used to have a mug that could be made into a sign. Even the mug got people to leave me alone. I bought it because people, at the time, said I was a very quiet person.

It looked like it was a hand written note.
"Quietly Plotting My Revenge."

I should have kept the mug.

Re: Sometimes I Want to Be Alone !

What bugs me are the ladies that wake me up and say I knew you were there I heard you snoring.
Why can't you ladies let a man sleep?

Re: Sometimes I Want to Be Alone !

How about a flag that says "If the boat is a-rockin don't bother knockin"

Oh wait, you're in a monohull.

Sorry, just couldn't resist.

Re: Sometimes I Want to Be Alone !

How about a sign:

Please come on board and I'll tell you about my 27 grandchildren

Ya might get a couple ole lady visitors though - everyone else will run for the other end of the marina
