Re: Anyone know a good place to buy a marine flag?

Rob-
Some of the flagmaker sites should also offer you advice on materials. Like sails, there are flags for different conditions. A lightweight one will fly better in light winds, like the airless July/August in the northeast. And of course, wear out faster than a heavier fabric. Ignoring "better" or "cheaper" fabrics, the heavier ones generally last longer but won't fly well in light winds.
Of course there's nothing to keep you from buying one of each. :-)

I'd be reluctant to fly a Navy jack, even a historic one, on a civilian boat. Technically, that's not allowed. Plenty of other good historical choices.

So what about a flagpole? Suggestions?

My boat got a flag for christmas but I haven't figured out the pole yet. The mount is 1" diameter.

I prefer wooden. They sell them everywhere. Here is just an example.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
