My worries about 'Burgee's'....
 
My CF Burgee arrived today...:thumb:
I must say I'm well impressed with the quality and strength of make and materials... beats the hell outa anything 'commercial'out there....
My first ever 'Burgee' to boot...
Why have I finally got one...?
guess its coz I enjoy rapping with a generally genuine group of 'Crazy Folks' who are also individualistic... and are prepared to fight for their way of life..
and also a tad curious to see how many boats 'Do a Runner' when one drifts into the anchorage... :p
CF is great fun... and the 'walking the line' on postings is nearly as addictive as seeing how high one can lift a hull before the flip... or polishing the rust off the exhausts on a winding country road...
Does this mean I'm now 'Institutionalised'....

I know you put this up here to tantalize all the registered users...we are green with envy. I think I will assauge my feelings with a good dose of taping and painting.

Is it hot over there yet?

What type of "institution" were you thinking of admitting yourself to? :confused:

Thats the strange thing about 'Institutions'...
We rarely put 'ourselves' there.... thats taken care off by the 'Great and Good'...:p

I saw a boat and their backstay was pretty much all burgees while in port. They said they collected them from various ports they visited. Starting a collection now?

You should put the zee hag avatar on your spinnaker. Don't waste it on a tiny burgee!

GO FOR IT Zeehag,

I'll fly my burgees when entering a new anchorage or when a new boat enters...
