ENTERPRISE SHOWS HER COLORS

Post by aaronbocknek »

just finished flying a brutal 4 day trip (caribbean and florida flying) and today i had some 'me' time. so, i thought it was a great time to give ENTERPRISE a few colorful additions. mike kulps boat is on my port side. just thought i'd share with the group.

What's the one on the left, so to speak? And I can't quite make it out -- is that one stripe teal?

I saw a nice tricab leaving Sue Island Sunday morning after the fireworks at Eastern Yacht Club. Attention all Chesapeake-area Trojan owners and wannabes. We ought to plan now for a raft-up, rendezvous, or other boating get-together centered around the fireworks in Middle River next (sometime after the 4th of July -- this year it was the 6th; looks like next year might be Saturday the 5th). The EYC anchors a barge off their pier and launches fireworks which are pretty awesome. Plus, there are other entities around, like the adjacent Baltimore Yacht Club, as well as multiple waterfront homes launching shore-based fireworks which are clearly illegal displays that rival those that would be put on by medium-sized city, who are doing their thing. I volunteer to lead the effort, which will consist of sending a reminder, providing GPS coordinates of where I'll be, and feeding cold beers to anyone who ever answered a question for me in a post. Mark your calendars.
I needed a less expensive hobby, so I bought a boat!

It appears the most important flag is missing, the one that makes the other 2 possible ....

Glad you're on the boat Aaron and enjoying the day.

While on the subject of boat flags, other than my Trojan flag and yacht club burgee, this is the most important flag on my boat. :D

i know i know i know.... it flys when i'm underway. i generally do not keep it out all the time as the flag pole socket drains right on top of the stern light,so i keep a cork in it. it's not the standard stars and stripes, but it's the yacht version. the one with stars and an anchor in the center. not to worry guys, 'glory' does fly. there was an older man walking the docks, a guest of a slip holder i assume, on memorial day. i had just set foot onboard when he shouted to me...''son, where are your colors?" (i knew exactly what he meant ). i remarked that i had just boarded and that i was reaching for it now under the storage hatch on the bridge. he said, 'snap to it then'. i did. he smiled then we parted ways. jeeze... give me a chance.

no. and i'm getting a little frustrated. i've made contacted two people who do marine applications and yet not one return call after initial contact. it appears as if no one wants to put on a vessel name that they did not make up themselves. i have the name and it's ready to be applied. i just cannot find anyone willing to do it. that's really frustrating.

Very nice Aaron! :D

As pointed out, your colorful display of banners would be oh so much nicer if you had that other very nice banner with the sars and bars pattern along with them. (A bit bigger than the other two, and in the middle if you can manage it.) :)

Enterprise is looking great! Those contrasting dock lines are nice and strong I'm sure; keeping her nice and safe at port. ;)

The Stars and Stripes is a flag not a banner . And no other flag/banner or pennant should be flown higher .

I have a weakness for pale ales, and am always available to help a fellow boater.... I was going to suggest the boatus graphics route too.
