Pirate flag

Does anyone fly a flag (pirate or otherwise) on their raft? How & where do you secure it? Do you use one of those ATV pole/antennae thingies to fly it? Do you worry about the pole harpooning your raft? Pics of your flag & attachment appreciated.

I fly flags. My setup is a hollaender fitting cut in half with a piece of pipe welded onto it (OD is 1" at the most). I then use two hose-clamps to secure it to the crossbar. I have also used the pole to mount my gopro.
I posted some pics of my newest setup in the "Show us them rigs" (?) thread. Pretty sure the flag is on there.

I fly the flag of The United States, and a Wyoming state flag. I use pvc conduit that is held in place by tie wraps.

Thanks. I found the picture in the "raft porn" thread.

Mine are on the stern gopro mount or the umbrella mount. They generally get shipped for battle with suspect rapids.

Cascade Outfitters has an umbrella mount that will fit an NRS frame. That should work. How do you keep the flag pole secure in the umbrella mount? I was wondering about putting some foam inside the mount to keep the flag pole snug in place. Like pool noodle type stuff.

here's a pic, although the pirate flag is on the gopro mount in this one. The gopro mount idea was copied from Kazak and works great (Thanks Alex)

The flag goes on the lower part of the umbrella pole, mounted to cascades umbrella stand. (edit: the umbrella holder has a long set-screw to tighten the pole in place)

This was on Lodore last fall

The only thing better than flying a pirate flag is?



I use a lo-pro with 8-10" of pipe on it and run a strap on the flag pole to keep it in place.
