It may not be at all factory, but I've wanted to buy one of these lights for years, but never had a boat worthy of it. Not every Starcraft would do! I paid about 400 for the light, and just mounted on my Vagabond yesterday. I think the pole with a Feathercraft flag would be sweeeeeeeeet!
I used to have one with the flag pole, but I sold off my hardware stuff a few years ago. I knew that I was never going to have a boat to put them on so I wanted to put them back out into circulation. I kinda got into this stuff quite a while ago, so was fortunate to find this stuff before it really went nuts. It was difficult to find the correct staffs for them, but I got to know a lot of the different boat collectors out there. Here's a couple of photos of the one I had. Sold it for $250 to a person that had a legitimate need for this particular piece. Didn't do too bad on it, I paid $5.00 for it in a second hand store in the bottom of a dirt encrusted wood box full of ancient plumbing parts and pieces. I pulled it out and took it to the counter, and the clerk asked me what it was. I just shrugged my shoulders and said "damned if I know, it's just cool." He replied, okay, five bucks.That's the way we used to do it. You'd look and you'd look, and then you'd look some more. The more you looked, the more you'd find. ebay wasn't even in the future. It took some cleaning up and I did have to source a new light lens for it, but it was looking good on the shelf for a few years.

I have one of those bow lights that's in the picture not the one that's high lighted but the one above it and I also have the cleats they were on an old fiber glass boat on its way to the dump I stopped and ask the guy that had them what he wanted for them and he gave them to me
Yeah... whenever those lights do show up for sale in almost any condition, the sellers are awfully proud of them. Good luck though. I'll keep my eyes open for one. If you just need the flag pole part, maybe it could be fabricated? ...Or, we do have a couple of guys here who do casting, and might be up for the challenge.
