191 Semaphores

I like the little guy down in the corner, undoing the previous letter.  I wish I had that option as a life hack.  

It's late summer, and time to go sailing.  How do you "write" a message from ship to ship or ship to shore?  For centuries, people have used gestures and flags.  

These are Semaphores, made by a person holding two flags in a variety of positions.  Stringing signal flags on a rope is a different system altogether.
