Default Cigarette Lighter

Hey Guys,

Without getting into why I smoke, WHAT I smoke, and when I smoke it, what is the best lighter for boating? And where can you buy it?

I've bought three of the Coleman ones, that Walmart has in the camping isle. Like everything at Walmart, they don't last.

Allot of Wives smoke.........do they have a "Killer lighter"?

This could have emergency implications, as well. If you've ever had a girlfriend or wife that couldn't light her cigarette, you know what I mean.

Thanks..............

The old fashioned Bic works for me. They float, will dry out and re-light, and cheap. Bring five and you wont have any shortage of fire.

I know, they're just not worth a flip, in the wind. There's gotta be something better?

Man, that seems eerily like the Marlboro Man............. I guess lighting one on a windy range is allot like a boat.......If nothing else, I'll be photogenic............

Hey Kingair, thanks for the link; that's the kind of technology that would work. These are kind of based on "elegance"; would love something based on outdoors. I'll check on the shrink tubing, duel purpose type.

Torch lighter on the boat with a minimum of one BIC...
I have a box full of Calibri lighters... Trust me, buy the $5 torches, just as good.
