BOATWORK WHILE UNDERWAY MONDAY!
The reason we had to make our own Q-flag is we forgot to buy one. For the non-boaters, this yellow flag is what you fly before you have cleared into a country. It is Q for quarantine—as in, don’t approach us because we haven’t officially been admitted.
As we were leaving Tofino I ran into a dollar store looking for something yellow to make the flag and found a yellow fabric shopping bag for $1. With some plastic tent grommets we had aboard, I made a Q-flag which we flew for the first time at anchor in Ensenada.
