Still have my incandescent stern light from 2003 in my boat. I was wondering what y'all use on your boats as far as mounting flags, whether it be on a bimini pole, something that goes into the light receptacle, or clips onto the light pole itself. Also wondering where I might find the LED whips that can go into the same receptacle. Thanks.

Ended up grabbing these work pretty well for flags.

I’m a 5150 whip fan, and just put these on the boat. I use their 6 foot day whips for flags. Could throw their lighted whips in the same magnetic mount, but probably not a good idea being that close to the water. Haha.

Best $.99 you can spend. I probably have about 20 of these all over my boat. Works for keeping the flag on the bimini, towels on the rails, hanging towels from bimini for extra shade, trash bag/hats/shirts secured, etc... Don't forget to plug the end of your hollow flagpole with some silicone so the damn flag floats for a few minutes if/when it goes in the lake...

Brought to you from "Boyz On A Budget"

Plastic bicycle reflector clamps, couple of thumb screws and 3/4 pvc

for the bow rail and Bimini ... pretty much no cost, the bow rail is only good when not underway,

the Bimini is shaped and supported good for ski/tow speed
