Owner Absent Flag
Fabricated from heavy-weight marine grade Dupont nylon treated to withstand sun and salt without discoloring or shredding.
Sewn hems with a double lock-stitched row (4 rows on the fly end!) of strong polyester thread.
Solid brass grommets.
For most of the past century, members of the most prestigious yacht clubs have flown the Owner Absent flag from the starboard spreader while at anchor to signal visitors when the owner would not be on board to receive them. Despite the advent of cell phones, the tradition still lives on.
