    I'm looking for two very large flags for my Bertram 54. Would like to mount to the outriggers (while not in use of course) or some other way. Any ideas?

    Would like:

    1. Stars & Stripes USA
    2. Trump 2020

    Thanks in advance.

    A lot of 3'x5's online, Haven't seen a 5'x8', but probably available. Good choice would like to see a pic when you get them flying!

    Why doesn't Trump wear glasses ? Because he's GOT 20 / 20 .

    FWIW, I just replaced my NYL-GLO marine yacht flag with a new Nyl-Glo marine American flag.
    Made in USA.
    The old flag was about 20 years old and flown on every trip.
    Wind, sun, salt spray and rain.
    Color was still pretty vibrant for it's age.
    The stitching in the stars was beginning to fray.

    P.S. I got mine at the flag store dot com but their trump 20 20 is only 3 X 5.

    Watching Trump...he seems to me to be the anti-aging POTUS. Politician enters White House, hair turns white, ages 30 years, leaves. Trump looks younger today than 2016. Just my take...

    Plenty of vacation days in FL/NJ and lots of “executive time” in the schedule will keep someone looking young...

    Plenty of other forums for you boys to talk politics, if its not about yachting or boating than your in the wrong place... Nothing good can come from this bloviating other than a locked flag thread.

    +1. Keep Trump, Anti-trump, and all other politics off this forum. BTW, as a matter of flag etiquette, it is hoped the OP remembers that the United States flag is always to be flown in the honored position when flown with other flags. This means that if the OP plans to fly the US flag and his Trump flag on the outriggers, the Trump (or any other) flag should be flown at a lower height/ less honored position. Twice this season I have noted this disrespect to the US Flag.

    With the exception of..... Texas. I learned that as Texas was once it's own country (1836-1845) after breaking off from Mexico and before joining the US. In deference to it's former "rank" its flag is considered equal to the US flag.

    Aside from that, yes.... PLEASE keep the politics off here. It will kill a forum in no time flat.
