I’m looking to buy a nice wooden flag staff for my newly acquired Sabre 30 MK III. Seems that the ones found on Amazon and other sources are not of the best quality. Does anyone know of a company that makes decent wooden flag staffs?
Thanks.

Hate to point you at WM since they're so expensive, but that's where I got a replacement teak flag staff.:beer:

Taylor Made products has wood & stainless poles as well as flags & mounting accessories.

Thanks Kappykaplan. They sell Taylormade Staffs that don’t always get great reviews, but that’s what I’ll probably wind up getting. Was just hoping someone had something better. I take it your staff has held up?

Absolutely! It's predecessor was another Taylor Made teak staff that I managed to shorten by 3" every time I failed to take the flag down before a dicey docking maneuver (okay, only twice), so I replaced. Good luck! :beer:

Same here! It hangs up on the dock piling. Otherwise it will last just fine, if you don’t leave it outside continuously.

Keep a look out at Marina swaps and consignment shops. I found a nice one for $3.50 at a consignment shop. Cleaned it up and it will be going on SV Hadley this year when we get back into sailing. I am afraid this Sequester will never end.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I ordered the Teak Staff from Whitecap Industries.
