I've been fishing at Narrow Neck, and with all the traffic around there I have reluctantly been using my safety flag.

I say reluctantly because I think it looks like something off a Raleigh-20 from the 1980's.


As luck would have it my jig snagged the flag on the way home and it's gone.

So I bought a NZ Red Ensign flag to replace it.

I'm just wondering what the best way to go about that would be.

I thought hot glue, or sewing it.

It needs to be pretty firmly attached with all the wind about these days :(

I have used self amalgamating tape on the top and bottom of my flag (also a NZ red ensign). The stretchy rubberised nature of the tape helps to grip the mast and flag firmly to the mast.

Burnsco has it for $19.99, assuming it's the same stuff.

This might have some ideas that could be used for making and fitting a flag -
