One of the most useful devices to have onboard your boat is a reliable and powerful flashlight, and the Tactical 3 from TerraLUX is most certainly both. Moreover, it is waterproof to around 8 feet for up to 4 hours, has a tempered-glass lens, and is constructed with hard-anodized aluminum for durability. The Tactical 3 has three different settings—at the highest (which blasts 250 lumens) it can run for 1½ hours and at the lowest it can run for 130 hours. The unit measures 6.4 inches in length and runs on two AA batteries.
This Memorial Day, remember those who were lost serving our country on the high seas in the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats. Recently we were invited out for a ride on the only operational combat-veteran PT Boat, PT 305 in New Orleans.
