Sometimes I Want to Be Alone !
 
I wonder if there is a flag that tells people, "Don't bother me!"
Not that I dont like company once in a while but I get tired of folks knocking on the hull. "Ahoy there! Anybody aboard?"
They always want to know who designed my boat, when was she built, what kind of wood is she built of, bla, bla, bla. It gets old! But, I guess I shouldnt complain, I'm lucky to have this old girl.
I'd just like to fly a flag that says, "come back later."
Is there such a thing??:confused::p

Wear a pink Tback thong and nothing else. Word will get around and you will then have your peace and quiet! :p

In traditional yachting, a solid blue flag flown from the starboard spreader means that the owner of the boat is absent, only crew are aboard. This was often a way to request privacy.

would that not be an invite to those unwanted to come shopping, as the owner isnt on board???

Maybe I could fly a pair of my dirty skivies - that might keep 'em away!

If someone knocks on your hull, and you go out to great them in this outfit below, most people will leave you alone

A sign that states, "PRIVATE: NO VISITORS" or if that doesn't work try ,"

"PRIVATE: VISITORS WILL BE SHOT/HUNG and EATEN"
