    Default Solas Flares, EPIRB, Water Jugs, Ditch bag

    Only a year and a half after the fact it's time to divest the SHTP stuff. I have the following items available:

    4 SOLAS parachute flares (expire 08/20)
    4 SOLAS handhled flares (expire 09/20)
    2 SOLAS smoke cans (expire 08/20)
    $75 for the lot of them.

    ACR Express floating ditch bag (makes an ok pillow when everything else on the boat is drenched)

    ACR GlobalFix Pro manual release 406MHz EPIRB (battery will require service in November, 2021)

    4 two-and-a-half gallon water jugs with self-ventilating spigot. These worked great in 2018. The spigot was the ticket. Made it very easy to refill the small day bottles without spilling.
    Hmm, price on these? Buy me a beer and show me what you are sailing to Hanalei Bay?

    As for prices all reasonable offers considered.

    I also have a complete set of paper charts for SHTP if anyone is in need.

    I'm not going to Hawaii, but I'll take the ditch bag if no one else asks. For OYRA/BAMA/SSS costal ocean races. My ancient ditch bag's zippers are stuck and several other things wrong. Keeping it tied closed with. length of line probably isn't the best idea in the unlikely chance I'll need to use it. How can we meet? I'll be at the Corinthian Awards party.
