I've had a few requests for burgees again, well about 4.

Ive asked me flag man, we aint got any.

If there is enough interest I'll get some made.

Rules will be the same as always. PM me, I'll give you the address to send SAE and cheque to £14, less things have changed. No I do not do Paypal or any other method you may dream up. Yes a bit old fashioned, but then I'm not trying to sell anything.

Your flag has been around for around twelve years, there are thousands out there. It's your flag and owes no allegiance to IPC or any one else, though they do support it, not financially I might add. You keep it flying or it fades away.

Flags will be ordered on the number of cheques and SAE's received. SAE means Stamped addressed envelope for return, A4 in this case, it requires a LARGE stamp.

If you want to know what it looks like, you've probably asked the wrong question, but no doubt some one will post a picture. It signifies the Internet and friendship. Basicly it's a mouse with a drink.

I'll post this across the forums, hopefully Richard or some one will make it a sticky for a while.

Thanks Haydn. I know you find burgee admin a pain, but Rafiki proudly carries hers (or does so now the fridge is fixed). Don't see many on the river Severn though.

Right. I have an array of envelopes here. What size do you need to send the burgee to me? Will A5 do or does it have to be an A4. And obviously the cheque for £14 right?

Burgee advice please

I bought a burgee 2 or 3 years ago. It came with a carefully longspliced continuous cord. This goes up the hoist of the burgee and forms a largish loop round to the bottom again.

It doesn't have the usual loop and toggle arrangement.

How am I supposed to hoist the burgee with this strange continuous cord arrangement?

:confused:

Hi Haydn.
Mine looks really smart but I only fly it now and then, and it is now a year old! :)
In which case, as you're having some more done, PM on the way so I can fly it all the time.
Many thanks for doing this.

Jeez, what sort of boatman are you?

Buy a dufflecoat button from a haberdashers (if SWMBO doesn't have a stock), cut the cord & seal it with heat, tie a clove hitch around the button & sew the bight back to the cord & finally tie a bowline in the other end, again sewing off the loose end. And make sure your get the loop & toggle at the correct ends or it will be upside down in any multi-flag hoist.

Bluddy amateurs!

Thank-you Searush, I think I can manage that!
I have never done it before of course. ;)

So, why have I got this blasted loop on the thing?
Someone has gone to the trouble of doing a beautiful long-splice in it and if I follow your advice, I shall simply cut this piece of ropework artistry off and throw it away.

Cheers.

Mike

I've never asked, but I think the idea is, you can cut it where you want.

Silly me, I should have provided instruction.:rolleyes:
