Doh!

It's a burgee, not a bungee, Jools!

...sorry to strreeettch the point

But seriously now, your mate's stuff looks excellent. And his "from" prices look very good. I wonder what's the order quantity to make the costs affordable? I suppose that with computer controlled embroidery machinery the setup costs must be quite modest.

Jools,

FYI dimensions for burgees for sail boats should be approximately 1/2 inch for each foot of the highest mast above the water.

For example, on a 30ft. boat, with 50ft. between the masthead and the water, the burgee should be about 25 in. i.e. about 2 ft.

Obviously this is not so applicable for RIBs, but I would think approx 12" x 18" should suffice. Anyone agree ?

As for material I'm not sure.

Mike

Good man Graham,

What I was thinking was this:

We should give John the option of producing the Pennants and sell them at a profit for the Ribnet Fund and or any other charity he supports.

If John declines this option we should let it go to the first volunteer on the thread who was some Geezer from Cardiff. The National home of English football (tee hee!), Where do you live Mike B ....I was born in Splott which explains why I live somewhere else now. I would propose that a definite part of the cover price goes to Ribnet.

By the way the more I understand about the IT infrastructure of Ribnet the more i am grateful for JK's Philanthropy, therefore I move for a three poond donation for Ribnet.

I looked through the thread and I reckon with my two that we would need about 20 to start with so that should ee the production costs.

Honda very kindly sponsored my participation in the Round Ireland Challenge, which didn't quite go to plan. accordingly the Hionda Flags were attached to a boat which was towed for 2800 miles in 10 days usually at speed just over 50mph, give or take 20 %, They stayed in very good condition and didn't fray much at as they were made from a Nylon type matrial. I'll post the material type later when I find the flags.

I also suggest that we move on this on the 1/11/02, they should be ready then to give to our wives for Xmas. All thos in Favour say nothing, all those in disagreement come up with an alternative.

Cheers
Stuart

Suppliers??

Stuart,

I have found via a Google search, a company called The Hampshire Flag Company who appear to specialise in burgees. Web site is:

http://www.national-flags.co.uk/Yacht-Club-Burgees.htm

But no prices mentioned.

As they appear to be local to you perhaps a quick visit may help get some ideas of materials & costs.

Stuart,

I will have trouble with the burgees as the printing process we use is unlikely to stand up to the continuous weather abuse a burgee is likely to take, and we will probably end up with a sub standard product which would be lucky to last a season.

If they are wanted I can handle Tee Shirts / Sweatshirst etc (also can do car stickers, which may be useful).

Jools did you have any luck with your supplier ?

If not The Hampshire Flag Co may be worth a try.

I do think that it is a good idea and I will certainly be on the list for one. (ready for when I get the boat).

NB I live in Atlantic Wharf just round the corner from Splott, luckily I got a pad bought before the prices went ballistic.

Cheers

Mike

I'll try the Hampshire flag company buy theres a place in Hamble called printing crazy which 'll also check out. Please JK stop me now by saying something like "oh I wanted to do that Stuart, leave it to me please" Failing that it's twenty burgees coming up.

Ill get a price for boat names and ribnet handles!

Did I put my hand up for a burgee? Count me in! My little SIB would be proud to wear something with the word "RIB" in the title

Hmmm, what about SIB.net?

p'raps I'd better go and register the domain before JK thinks about it (or has Keith done it already?)
