Nope.... I got boarded a few times for checks. They said they did not need to see flares :huh:hmm. learn something new all the time. i assumed it was mandatory to carry flares no matter what safety equipment you have.
so if i carry a signal mirror and the distress flag,which i do along with dye packs for the water and my flares are expired,there is no problem from the marine police if they decide to do a safety check while in the deleware bay?
