In order to keep growing you help in spreading the word about Cruisers Forum would be greatly appreciated. A great way to spread the word is to tell people about Cruisers Forum when you are at the Marina or having a conversation with another sailer that might not know about Cruisers Forum. Another way to help spread the word is to link back to us if you have a website or post links to relevant discussions on social bookmarking sites like Digg, del.icio.us, and furl (see a list of these sites at wikipedia here).

The more links we have back to our community the better. It will make us more connected in "the web" which helps in so many ways.

Flick me an email at editor@crew.org.nz, we can do a link swap.

I'm full of genius ideas. If CF sponsors us a new spinnaker, we'll slap your logo and website on it for all to see as we proudly storm along the coastline....

The burgees are made and we will be posting them for sale soon. Unfortunately there is not space for username and it would be difficult to do that since they are ultra high quality and the only way to do usernames would be silk screening which would entail creating a new template for each user.

We have thought about large decals for the back of a boat where we could do member names as well. I am not sure if there would be enough interest for that or not.

Actually, you do have the option of putting your Cruisers Forum name on your burgee, Little Otter . . . it's the same option your mother used with your underwear the first time you went to summer camp:

Two ways to put a screen name on a burgee, although aside from some mideastern countries, the tradition is never to put "words" on a "flag".

You can run the burgee through an inkjet printer that has a flat feed slot for heavy stock, taped taught to a carrier sheet, and print right on it. That's gonna bleed through on the back.

Or you can get "iron on" "transfer" paper at any local stationery or WalMart store. Print your name with any inkjet printer, and then transfer it onto the burgee with a plain hot clothes iron. Don't know how durable that will be, IIRC it works best on polyester blends.

So if you really must, and you don't do well with a Sharpie and you don't have a handy set of code flags to run up the mast...<G>...

The burgee measures 3/16" thick at the grommets & fly. I don't think it'll pass through any printer.

It's made by "Prestige Flag"

Lori (KnottyGirlz) hand stitched (embroidered) our boat's flag. I'm sure for a modest fee she could be convinced to add screen names to the burgee's!
