I'm still flying the prototype, along with two yacht club burgees that are the identical size.

That's right, there is going to be a huge market for them!

I agree that it's pretty small and hard to see from afar. I thought about Vinyl stickers with the Charlie Fox Trot at the top and username just below that which could be put on the stern but I don't know how many people would actually adhere them to their boats? Would you?

Re: What's wrong with the CF burgee ...

The CF burgee is a typical yacht club size, 12" x 18", which I think is fine. I have one and it is very high quality. Any larger and it might start to look odd and out of place, in addition to being more expensive to produce.

A sticker would be great. It would not necessarily end up on boats transoms but then wherever it does end up just might help in increasing the forums name recognition. I could not put one on the transom of the university owned research vessel but I would put one on the back of my truck and car. Perhaps start with a small number of them and see how well they sell?

Re: What's wrong with the CF burgee ...

I don't like stickers. I've only ever put one on anything (my Jeep) I own but it sort of illustrates my cocky nature!



I really like the CF burgee. Haven't had a chance to fly it yet. I think it's the same size as any other I've seen. Don't think I'd put a sticker on my boat though.
