    Tail flag when trailering

    When pulling my boat, I always get nervous when someone pulls up behind me at stop signs and traffic lights. They ALWAYS look too close. I added a flag to the engine as a focal point for that driver, rather than have them pick my truck, trailer or boat as a stopping point. A strap could cause rub marks on the engine paint and there weren't many spots to clip a flag to.
    The idea came to me to use the water flushing hose connection. Using a plastic male hose repair connector, I drilled a pair of holes and threaded a ty-wrap through the flag and connector. It screws snugly to the engine, but I laced a string to it until I'm sure the connector won't back out.

    Hopefully the pics will come through.

    Sleeps everyday until done.

    Hey, that should work, all the way to seen of the crash. It is a good idea, I worry about that too.

    I have suggested to Bass Cat that they develop a tight fitting cover that would fit over the Prop. It to be stretch corded and reflective. It could read "Bass Cat" or "Watch Out" or "Stay Back" or anything else.
