Fellow Woody Boater Ron Stevenson sent us a fun request, and to be honest, we have had the same question many times. Are the correct Flags a little two small? Is there a reason for the smaller size? No touching the brite work? Times have changed though, and a stunning mast and flag are all part of the magic our Woody Boats deliver. So here is Rons question.
I am at the final stages of getting my 1948 20′ ft Chris-Craft Custom “Beautiful Day” done. Many thanks to Kerry Price our Custom Tracker, Ike Kielgass, who found the boat to begin with, and to Rob DaPron, who did an amazing restoration job, to Karl Hoffman for rebuilding the V8, and to other friends, and members of our Pacific Northwest chapter of the Antique & Classic Boat Society who have made various contributions. Sorry, with my gray hair, I am not able to remember everyone’s name!
The question for the WoodyBoater readers is how big of a flag should be on the flag staff? First, do you fly an actual American flag, or a yacht Ensign? One rule of thumb is 1 inch along the staff pole for every foot of your boat. Just who’s rule is that? And who’s thumb are we talking about?
So inquiring minds want to know, how big is yours?
