If you can’t find a flagpole for the bow make one. You built a boat, you can make a flagpole.

Turned mine out of some leftover mahogany. Couple hours turning and some rub on poly, piece of cake! My daughter said it looks like a drumstick...

I don't have a lathe, but I could probably get close with a spokeshave and then sand the crap out of it.

Hi Matt,
I got my bow pole and the stern pole at classic boat connection. The stern pole is wired with the connector to put into the standard plug.

I can see the allure of the polished metal windshield brackets. This wooden frame is COMPLICATED! It's coming along though.

A wood frame windshield is not a small task! The angles and symmetry are tough!

Thanks for posting those pictures Matt! I'll be getting to this at some point in the next several months and it's one of those parts I am nervous about. Yours is looking great. Love that horn on the deck!!
