What is this for......?

On the port side tube of my Zodiac. I have this hole with a screw thread, kind of embedded in a patch. It looks like original equipment, but there is nothing shown on the plan drawings for the boat, as here....

It looks like it is for a small flag pole of sorts, but I have nothing with the boat that has a screw thread.

Zodiac used to include a small flag staff that threaded into that piece and included a Zodiac flag.

go to zodiac-nautic.com , use the dealer locator, then give them that part number.

Or, google...you can probably find someone with an e-commerce front.

Thank you for the part number, found one on ebay from Chas Newens. 15.10 though.

Put that on my list of things to purchase....!

RIBase
The Zodiac pennant/flag is a nice touch, but invariably it gets broken, with ropes, handling, etc. Lost count of the time I had to Araldite mine on my old MKII CGT.

Do you know what mate, since finding the one on ebay, I have looked at it a few times now, and the same thought has gone through my grey matter. I am now thinking is it worth 15, when I have 3 kids jumping around the boat, let alone me and all my gear.

A lot of people around here used to change the Zodiac flag for a dive flag. Wasn't ideal, as it's too small and too low. Better than nothing, I suppose.
