Keep the expired ones for use in an emergency, but get new ones to be in compliance. I HIGHLY recommend getting only SOLAS grade flares...they're an order of magnitude better than USCG flares.
Yep, that's why I have so many expired ones, because I keep replacing them with current ones. While I don't carry the SOLAS flares in our local waters, I would certainly outfit my boat with them when I go offshore.
