Re: pennants (not the baseball type!)
Why not fab up a piece of aluminum? It's easy to work with. You can use aluminum for the rivet too. Also, replace the old cable with Amsteel--it's better in every way.
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
