no lie! Andy has got boxes of em, he just can't figure out how to set up to sell and ship them!

; -D

So really, it's NOT a big tease, it's just one of those 'when he gets it figgered out' thangs!

And they are really really nice quality. Double layers of the white back ground with the CF in flag signal symbols appliqued on.

No problem. I can help. Here's how you can do it.

Post an address. People send money. Mods or their duly authorized agents put burgees in boxes and mail them to people.

Now all people happy. No problem.

Set up a PayPal account. PP owes me, so I figure on getting a burgee with no additional outlay. Wouldn't that be great?

Thumbs up Sorry in advance

So it's a nice (for PNW) night in September. Dear wife is in China and India and I am home alone. This is almost the end of vacation for this year and an opportunity to spend the night with Idora, just the two of us.

The dock in PL is full of French sailboats ( the kind that cause so much argument ) nice folks..........but it's 61 degrees out and I can only escape the roar of Webasto's down here in the Foc'sul. Really..... Some folks feel Slocum and Shackelton (sp?) but 61 degrees F? Come one ladies...

I wish the dock was full of CF'rs, there is are a bunch up here.. It would be really cool if Rain and Del and C Cobra and Newt and DOJ (look out) were here and we could have a piece of fish and a cool one (whatever).

As Rain has said, this is my yacht club. I say lets make it real. Bring on the burgee.

Todd

Which flag halyard?

So, are the burgees to be flown from the port-side halyard, or what?

Annapolis Book of Seamanship says: "Traditionally, the yacht club burgee is flown at the masthead on a pig stick hoisted on a light flag halyard, but may be flown from the starboard spreader or a jack staff."

kind regards,

kind regards,
It seems to depend on how the boat is equipped with flag halyards and staffs and what other flags are being flown at the same time. However, I wouldn't liken the Cruises Forum burgee to a yach club burgee. ... Is the port-side spreader halyard the place of least honor? Expert opinion solicited. What is the order of "positions of honor" for the various flags, starting with the highest as national ensign flown from stern staff or stern-most sail leach?

Let's say one's able to carry flags on a stern staff, bow staff, port-spreader halyard, and starboard-spreader halyard, had the choice to fly the national ensign, squadron pennant, club burgee, USCGAux ensign, private signal, CF burgee, and the skull-and-crossbones. Obviously, there are more flags than places for them, and some should never be flown at the same time.

Flag honors

With only spreader halyard available, I fly:

Old Glory

CF Burgee (when available)

Bikini top

Speedo

Land of the free, home of the brave.

in home waters, burgees are flown from the starboard halyard except when signal flags are in use. in foreign waters, either the quebec flag or the courtesy flag belong on the starboard halyard, and burgees are moved to the port halyard.

powerboats often fly burgees off the bow staff. I'm not sure why they do this, but it looks cool.

the ensign is NEVER flown on a spreader halyard. On a sailboat it is usually carried on the stern, but may also be carried on the leech of the aft-most sail. On powerboats, it is always carried on the stern.

pirate (skull and crossbones) flags are NEVER flown by warships, commercial vessels or proper cruisers. We're supposed to know better.

Bikini tops, owners flags, and flags of office are probably best reserved for the port halyard. This is especially true for staff commodores.

Put me down for a burgee when they are released from purgatory... but, in the meantime, I was fiddling around with my VHF this weekend and for some reason remembered this post/quote above?

I realized that my VHF (and I understand many - most? - others) now have the ability to set DSC "groups" using their vessels' MMSI numbers. In this raft-up scenario, if there had been a CF group, presumably everyone could have gotten organized much more readily.

Besides, if you had a large list, you could always just broadcast a "hello" to that group when you enter a likely marina or moorage and, who knows, maybe you'd locate a friend... all without touching 16 or irritating anyone else.

I've never done this with a DSC group, so perhaps I'm missing something here...

But, has any thought ever been given to assembling a CF database of MMSI numbers? Or maybe even simply adding it as a field on the public forum profile?

I personally don't think of mine as particularly sensitive - someone can always hail me the usual way "Hey, idiot in the white sailing vessel...".

Just a thought.
