Although I don't recall seeing it listed that way, Robert's chart seems spot-on. I do recall reading in Chapman's several boats ago, that the proper size of a national, stern displayed flag, is deternined by matching the flag's base measurement in inches to the boat's LOA in feet - rounding off to the size highest.

A 24" x 36" flag is borderline for a 37'- 38' boat, therefore the 30" x 48" flag would be the best choice. Our 33' boat (36' LOA), has a 24" x 36" flag.

Same disillusionment - expected to have a little fun (fagstaff?) . But considering it's not in Off-Topic, I accepted Simon's apology.

Can you edit a title? I thought you could. Otherwise, you may continue to get some unwanted attention.
