The Weems & Plath SOS Distress Light is the first and ONLY LED Visual Distress Signal Device that meets U.S. Coast Guard requirements to completely replace traditional pyrotechnic flares. Unlike traditional flares, this electronic flare never expires which solves the challenge of flare disposal. This floating electronic flare can be hand-held, tethered, or hoisted aloft. It runs up to 60 hours, unlike traditional flares which last minutes or less. With included large Daytime Distress Signal Flag the SOS Distress Light makes you compliant with all U.S. Coast Guard requirements for "Day and Night Visual Distress Signals". Compliance is also good for documented and registered boats while traveling in Canada. Winner of the 2016 Freeman K. Pittman and NMMA Innovation Awards!
