I thought there was a issue where NY didnt go along with coast guard approval on the electronic flare and wouldnt accept it

Gota watch out at the "marts". Went to purchase some flares and half their user life had already expired.

I believe the electronic flares are only for night use. You still need a day signal.

It seems your right.  Looks like I have to get a flag.  I got the electronic thing last year because I was piling up old flares and they were getting expensive.  

below is from the NYS boater's guide

I accumalated half of a  bushel of old flares. One Fourth of July I tried to fire some off. A lot of older flares the twist off igniter would not open even with vise grips. Besides being a hazardous condition, be aware that the old flares are unusable.

Yes definitely check expiration date, I dig through them and get the latest I can find when I buy mine.
