usa-american-flag-waving-animated-gif-26

On this Memorial Day, we remember all the men and women who have served our country and are serving now across the globe.  Let’s honor them with the proper placement of our national flag on our boats.

Rule for Power Boats:  Flown from a staff on the stern.  One inch of length (the fly) for every foot of boat length.

Rule for Sail Boats:  Flown from a staff on the stern or from the backstay.  Same sizing as power boats.

HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY, BOAT/US!

Congratulations to BOAT/US on their 50th birthday!  All of us at SEA SENSE BOATING have held long-time personal memberships.  We appreciate their hard work in protecting boaters’ rights in Washington, and their towing insurance is the first thing any boater should invest in.

 

So thanks, BOAT/US!  Here’s to another 50 years!
