Does anyone have a good source for a set of signal flags that won't cost me an arm and a leg? I want to be able to dress ship, and I think the most common size (12" hoist, aka size 0) is too small for my boat, they will end up looking sparse and have look like a service station or a tire sail.

I want to use at least size 2 with an 18" hoist. If I use 18" between flags (more or less) gives me 120' for a 40 flag set, which ought to be enough to get up and over and back down to the waterline of my 55' mast.

Anyway - there are a bunch of sets out there @$400 (and up) which is too much for a frivolity like this (although one boat owner I met said that every year you ought engage in one stupid upgrade). Has anyone used the West Marine 18" set for ~$150. Hard to believe they could be the lowest cost (and I have a funny feeling that they may be discontinued there anyway)

Note: I also want to avoid printed flags.

Thanks,

-Taylor

Landfall Navigation has the size 0 set for less than $300.

Another set here for $200, not size 0.

These guys have the size 0 set in nylon for $240 on sale right now.

Google is your friend... :rolleyes:

You can get cotton ones for about $90, but if they get wet, they'll look like crap. :) Don't recommend getting them.
