Flag holder for G3 tower?

Recommended Posts

rls34

I am tired of the kids losing flags over the side of the boat. Any one know of a good tower mountable "skier down" flag holder for the G3 towers? Open to ideas/suggestions....except tossing the kids. Wife says we have to keep them. Thanks.

We have a flag with a suction cup and stick it on a wake or surf board.

Check your regs, usually the flag must be held, not mounted. Also driving around with the ski flag up all the time will get you a pull over, if not an actual ticket.

I have the flag buddy on my Vride. When I had the bimini made on top of the tower, I made a flag with an extra long stick. Now when we pull the flag down, it's below the gunnels, out of sight. And when we raise it up, it's above the bimini, really obvious for others to see. And it's always attached, so harder to lose, drop overboard, etc.

I've been pulled over by the cops for having boat numbers that don't stand out enough & for general safety checks. But they like the flag buddy. It's simple, easy to use & easy for others to see. I believe the law in WA says it must be "operated by a person", but not actually held.

BTW, I looked that law up & found an update. Must be pertaining to the Solo.

"Remote-operated personal watercraft (PWCs designed to be operated by a towed person) must have a skier-down flag attached to the PWC."

Did you ever find a decent flag holder to fit around the 3" G3 Tower? The flag buddy only fits around a 2 1/2" pipe.

I purchased the airheads holder for their large foam flag. It goes on with zip ties whereever you want to put it. I should get it today and will tell you how it goes. It is $8 on Amazon.

It doesn't go around the tube. I'll see if I can get a picture of my buddies. It's bolted to the flat part of the tower leg.

Where did he get it? I don't see anything from flagbuddy, bakes, etc. It sounds like exactly what I am looking for also.
