With the 1.3.0 update for Dredge, you’re now able to customize your boat in a few different ways. I tracked down all of the Dread flags and paints, to help you spruce up your little boat!

First off, there are three customization options in Dredge:

  • Adding Flags to your roof
  • Painting your Roof and Hull
  • Adding or removing your Bunting

To make these boat changes, head to Little Marrow (K8) in the Marrows and speak to the Painter, who will let you add flags you’ve found (all locations below) as well as paint your ship.

You’re able to find 6 different flags, and there are 8 different paints you can choose.

You’ll find Flags by dredging them up around shipwrecks. There are 6 in all to find, which are located in the areas below:

  • Eyes Flag

  • Anchor Flag
    • Found in Stellar Basin in G2 above a wrecked ship.

Here are the paint options and the crabs (use Pots!) they require:

Default Paints:

  • Rusty Red – Default Paint
  • Seaweed Green – Default Paint
  • Blue Depths – Default Paint

Unlockable Paints:

  • Sharp Mint Paint
    • Requires Marrows Crabs: Malignant Pincer & Cerebral Crab
  • Maple Orange Paint
    • Requires Gale Cliffs Crabs: Cortex Decorator & Splintered Crab

While not required for achievements or completion, Dredge adding Customization gives a little bit more to love with the game, allowing you to tweak your ship a bit. After all, you’ll be looking at it A LOT!
