They are good but watch the dates

I have these on the boat for safety and a must per CG regs. You have to check the dates on them when you are buying them. Some on the rack were only good...Read complete review

I have these on the boat for safety and a must per CG regs. You have to check the dates on them when you are buying them. Some on the rack were only good for a year or so.They should have a exp date 3 years from when you buy them.

Buy a 4-pack when only 3 are required

What a racket. Coast Guard requires 3 flares. Orion packages in sets of 4. Then indicates the flares are only good for 3 years. Making this a mandatory rip-off.

                  Had a boat inspection by the United States Power Squadron and found the the flares we had were out dated (already). Hope we never use them, but it sure gets dark out there when your broke down. Call your local USPS to get rid of the old flares. They light them off once a year to show boaters how to use them.
