Making our Q-flag

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.

Et voila:
