It is a SC thing but nothing was unknowingly misinterpreted. Being an SC native I'm aware the crescent was actually part of the revolutionary war uniform. However, whether we like it or not, these days the crescent is pretty much a de-facto moon and the marketeers in SC have done nothing but promote the idea since, it does make for a pretty romantic coastal theme which is great for promoting tourism. Anyway, I just went with the flow since "Palmetto Gorget" doesn't roll of the tongue as poetically. As for the colors they are not about the north south thing. The blue is the same blue as the stripes that were on the boat which are pretty close to the blue field of the flag. I chose grey for the drop-shadow as a reminder of the grey hull of our Oday 322, the first Palmetto Moon and it also matches closely with the grey rub strip so it all goes together.

Rush Limbaugh??? Man that stings -- I have dropped 25 lbs since that photo though. I thought I was doing a fair Dennis Conner pose. lol

4arch, not sure if I'm misreading your sketch but if you're planning on making the port of call letters 2" you need to bump them up to 4" per CG regs.

Hopefully this posts properly. October Moon, named after the full, bright moon that was hanging in the sky the October evening we received word she was ours.
