    How and where to fly the USA flag-gctid391231

    I was reading a thread and a comment was made about flying the USA flag so I thought I would search it out.

    I found this link and thought it was good info. My boat when I bought it was flying from the radar arch. Its difficult the put a flag on the stern because of rhe canvas top configuration.

    Here is a link to the info....

    Interesting. I run the International Association of Fire Fighters Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial in Colorado Springs and have studied the federal flag policy for the last few years. I've never studied it for boats. The interesting thing is that you are not supposed to fly the flag on the rear end of a fire truck but it's ok to do so on a boat.

    Just an FYI...did you know you're not supposed to wear the American Flag like on a t-shirt.

      On my other boats I had a flag on the bow. The regs says thats not right but I find it interesting that most boats that have a bow rail has a flag mounting thingy on every one of them. I guess thats for flying the jolly roger or margarita flag.

        Actually, on our size boats (recreational) the bow is normally where we fly a yacht club flag... On USN Ships when in port, we fly the US Flag on the stern as well. Out at sea, it flies high on the mast so others can see it...

          IMO - The 265 isn't really configured with a good spot to mount the flag from the stern - so I did the closet I could come to a mast - I fashioned an "anchor" plate that is securely fastend to the top of the radar arch (nothing else is on the arch), fastened a metal flag pole mount to the makeshift anchor plate, and fly her high.
