I think it looks great and reminds me of the old 1970s tv series the Avengers logo

Not that it really matters these days but i think there was a strict rule many years ago in boating and ships flag etiquette/ protocol that the Union flag/jack could not be displayed on a boat or ship on its own unless it was part of of a recognised flag , eg red ensign or the red duster,,,,
lets face it I haven't ever seen anyone in the court file of the local newspaper getting a fine for it lol

But! in the 1970,s I worked for an old established British company that was a major supplier of thermal clothing we also had a sailing yacht for general cruising and undertook the Fastnet race ect
logo was just a lion/ incorporated union jack on the side of the hull
but it was only on for a short while until the directors had a letter from some government department demanding it be removed,
I can just imagine nowadays in the depths of Whitehall some brass plate on the door of an dingy dusty office ( Flag Inspector) lol

That's a really good point, I might do some rummaging and mention it to the owner.

How about some window film with a tint on the windows to 'complete' the flag more ?

Even the flag in grey tint woudl really finish it off ?

We did think about it and I can get an opaque red film for glass but as most of it is a removable plastic cover type screen we didn't see much point.

If it had the Olympic Rings on it you'd stand more chance of being strung up than sporting the Union flag.

I think this RIB lives in or around Chi harbour and was also in the papers doing the Thames Royal Jubilee event?
