Against the wind
Here’s a quickie post about a product that I like, the Ancor Mini Pocket Butane Torch. Trying to light a lighter on the deck of a boat is about as frustrating an activity as one can do. Why would you want a lighter in the first place? To melt the ends of freshly cut line is one example of when you could use a lighter, or to heat up electrical shrink wrap tubing. Anyway, normal lighters just won’t cut it in the wind. This product does.
I read the reviews on the Amazon page that I linked above and there are several unfavorable ones. Well, the product works for me and as far as boat stuff goes, it’s pretty cheap. Note that it does not ship with butane in it. You will need to buy a can of butane and fill it yourself. Yes, it is refillable.
And nothing to do with the lighter but the post subject reminded me of it… 🙂
