Keeping them out os sight is not a bad idea at all but SOLAS does not aply to normal sized yachts. No harm in folowing the minimum SOLAS requirements though.

They also work great for keeping birds off the spreaders.
A red laser is not bad but for maximum visibility at night, the best color laser is green such as (Hulk Laser ). Green is much more visible to the eye and would be visible from a greater distance when signalling. Lasers have the advantage over flares in that they can be used multiple times, can be left on and are not normally a customs issue.

Unless you want to do some serious damage to birds, i'd avoid using any lasers on them.

I have noticed they take boat folks to the bank on flares.

You pay 3 times what most others pay.

Order your flares on line. That or try to stop into a truck stop at a us marina. If they have a marina they have a truck stop. Fo buy you hand held there for about 2 bucks each. Trucks do not use them anymore.

The flare guns can be ordered online and UPSED to most areas. Mine cost me less then 15 bucks with 5 flares. It is plastic and bright orange. it came with 5 flares. 1- 7 second, 2- 5 second and the rest 3 second. The extra flares are expensive. I will just order a new gun with 5 flares, its like 2 bucks more.
