Re: All's Flare!

Take the Saftey At Sea course and pay attention during flare class's when they take a firing boat out about 1000 some odd feet

Your normal run of the mill flare we all own and love to replace when it expires is freaking useless at about 500 candlepower in daylight

Now the SOLAS stuff was up in the 15000 range BUT they both have slag issues

There are way to many different was to pull the rip coard on handheld rockets

And there were things like never cocking the pistol unless it was already over YOUR HEAD
