Re: White Flares
BTW for anyone who hasn't fired one of those 12 ga. flare guns, they are depressingly puny on the ocean on a pitch dark night.
You're absolutely right Capttb.
If you just want to meet coast guard requirements, the 12 gauge flares are ok. If you might want to actually signal for help some day, you need Solas flares.
