Jono

At least I never resorted to questioning your job Jono. Then again I obviously dont take life as seriously as you. Sorry if you felt insulted by what I said wasnt aimed at anyone in particular just those who spend their lives trying to spoil others' enjoyment.
Still got to go out now to measure how far from the kerbside the neighbours are parking!!

Touchy!

I wasn't trying to win an argument. Just making an observation . . .

Is it safe to let off flares in, or even near a rubber dinghy?

We had couple of police officers in our workshop tonight and I showed them this thread andd asked for their opinion how they would react. Over here there is legislation allowing general public to use fireworks including distress flares from Dec. 28th through Jan 6th every year from 8 in the morning until midnight except on New Years Eve when is allowed all night. Apart from this allowance fireworks are not allowed for the general public however organisations can apply to have shows or using flares on special occasions but general public are in no way granted such permission. So back to the police officers if the would spotting anyone offensing distress flares it would be reported.

Well, I would shoot mine skyward. How would you do it?



More seriously, I've bounced welding spatter of me tubes a few times with no ill effects. I wouldn't imagine flare sparks to be a problem.

Actually, I've just lied because on one occasion a big white hot gloop fell and lodged itself against a side rope and the tube. It melted deep into the rope but just left a wee black spot on the hypalon. I didn't even burn down to the fabric.

So there, smartie pants.

Could let the flares off indoors. Indoor fireworks were very popular in the 70's.......Not sure the Fire Brigade would be too happy though! (Any fireman apply below)

Seriously though, I hadn't given much thought to setting off flares during celabrations and before reading this thread would have been happy to have launched a parachute flare at midnight New Years Day (from land). But won't be doing that in the future! Pin point flares inland not really a problem in the back garden, is it!
