Hi i have recently purchased a safety flag and railblaza mounting. I am looking at attaching it and wondering what others have found the best mounting point is for the safety flag on a Ocean kayak 4.3. I was looking at attaching to the top of my ice box( Not sure what they are called but there are two circular moulded inserts.... i think this might have been part of the moulding process.... seems to fit well there and looks a good position.. . Is this a good point or are there better options?

Cheers Bruce

Hi yak64

I have found this the best place to mount for me is out of the way, placed a HD Railblazer mount on the flat section

Thanks straydog for posting this.... as i have a ice-box i was thinking that might be an out-of-the-way place for me to attach the flag and wondering if anyone has had experience having done this and any thoughts re where is the best position on the ice box that is functional but not in the way.. cheers
