I think a proper boat should have a flag, so I will put one up. Just a basic question, as being so close to the boarder.

Good day all.
The courtesy flag is hoisted AFTER you clear customs and immigration. You should show the flag of the country of registry of your vessel on the stern. You probably will not get into Canadian waters.

Either on a pigstick at the the top of the mast - that is the tradition (before wind instruments). Or on the port spreader. Power boats may carry it on the bow.

Re: San Juans; advice & suggestions

Well I am down to about a week before I head that way, can't wait.

Where might I pick up a current and tide chart or book in Anacortes. I can print up tide charts off the www. but have not found much of currents on paper. I will not have any electronics with me ie computer or internet and my cell phone will be way buried.

Thanks for all the help.

Uphill

Re: San Juans; advice & suggestions

There is a west marine on the main drag about 3 blocks north of the turn off to the ferry. I am sure there are some other places that have books too. If you go to the sticky at the top of this area, there are plenty of books that folks like. Having not been up that way too much, I can not remember the book name many like. I have one some where. I have a puget sound one I use more. Captn jacks or some such thing is ringing a bell.

Enjoy your time here! If you get to ludlow, ie a bit south, should be there over the weekend.
