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.
