Was sorting some stuff last night, and opened up the flare polybottle that normally rides in the holder on the A frame.
Its a Pains Wessex Offshore Flare pack....not looked in it since finishing Round Ireland last year.
I lifted out the flares and the constant rubbing and movement had rubbed almost all the labels on the flares back to white. Illedgible.
More worryingly, the hand held smoke flares had unpopped their rubber end caps and the pull strings and tabs had managed to inter-twine themselves into a knot.
I have put a base of bubble wrap in the bottle, and wrapped each flare now so there is no movement within the container.
I thought about the current wake jumping thread...it would have been interesting if one had fired inside the container
Anyone know of this ever happening?
