Iconic Antenna/Dive Flag Pole Hardware Used on all three ARGONAUT Yachts
These two important pieces are extra special and rare because these are the only two remaining pieces of original hardware used on all three screen-used yachts. These Bronze and Plastic pieces were used to fix Mike Nelsons iconic DIVE FLAG to his famous boats. The DIVE Flag pole was removed from the original Chris Craft, ARGONAUT, then installed onto the Eddy Craft, ARGONAUT II. Then finally when the brand new custom built TROJAN, ARGONAUT was delivered to the “Sea Hunt” set for the filming of season four, the dive flag hardware was removed from the Eddy Craft and mounted onto Mike Nelsons brand new 1961 TROJAN ARGONAUT where it remained to this day. The only missing part is the original antenna pole. The previous owner removed the pole but left the bronze and plastic hardware in place when he upgraded the radios in 1966.
