Default Dive gas docks

Have you ever seen the fire prevention safety signs that say "No pen Flames" within 50' of a gasoline pump!

This is simply too close for comfort! ....
I agree with FLL. Until the Fire Marshall and MP says otherwise I will be concerned with anyone near the dock when any kind of open flame. I have seen boats blow up at gas docks over the years with people thinking that would never happen. This to me is a potentially dangerous situation.
Thanks FLL for the alert!
