Red X'rs know about the beautiful Red X Flags made by the talented wife of Soloskiff fisherman. I was thrilled to receive mine today! Absolutely beautiful. Teds wife makes these for those who organize meet and greets. Mine will proudly sail on my Old Town canoe. Ted, please thank the misses for me!

I have organized 4 or 5 Red-X meet and greet's ! Do I qualify for one of those beautiful flags ? They are so :cool:
You definitely do qualify for a flag and will get one to you as soon as possible. Sorry but with everything going on lately I forgot about the Kinston meet and greet.

I would think that the mounting of a flag pole is going to be a challenge in a canoe.
It will be but only because of the rod holders and anchor thwarts I have in the bow and stern. I'm thinking midships but have to make sure there is clearance from paddle strokes and casting.

Just in case you aren't kidding about knowing what ty-raps are, they are the plastic locking ties that are made different lengths, sizes and strengths, and mostly black and white. Wrap them around something, pull tight until they snug up. Ty-rap should Google with those words.

Zip Ties. Ty-raps, Cable ties, They are all the same.

Ty-Raps is a T&B brand name, they used to be the only ones with a metal "tooth" that made them hold much better than the ones with the plastic tooth, When we could request what we wanted instead of just what we were supplied most electricians, and equipment installers asked for T-yRaps. I also may say 33 instead of electrical tape, wire-nut or sta-kon instead of crimp sleeve or twist connector. Kinda of like nearly everyone using Channel-Loc, Skillsaw, and Vice Grip, instead of the proper name.

Sorry for confusion.

Darrell we used the same terms, names, and brands where I worked before retiring. Over 6 years now since I retired, and I was on tear out projects 2 years before that. Found out I was better at tearing up than repair.
Not going to ask what you call the connection boxes on motors. Bet it is the same as where I worked. We did use StaKon connectors up until the last 4 years, and then we got into some other brands.
Same with tool brands.
The construction guys used to like Channel locks, the brand, better than any other. They used to kid with me about my Craftsman brand pliers. Actually, the Channel locks did work a bit better.
