      A flaming arrow shoot into the ocean was a standard part of the
      annual Mermaids Tourney held in the Shire of False Isle in the
      Kingdom of An Tir. Unfortunately, the event has been moved inland
      and the shoot has had to be dropped.

      Here is the recipe used as written up by Archos John Macandrew back
      in 2001. Works well with handbows and most crossbows. There was
      someone who built a 300 pound crossbow and the flame would be
      snuffed out within the first second of flight.

      Ingredients

      Longest arrow shafts you can find.
      6 inches by 15 inches of burlap
      12 inches of wire
      12 inches of 1/2 inch duct tape
      1 self nock (see page 43 for directions)
      kerosene
      plank for drying



      Procedures

      1. Begin by wrapping the burlap around one end of the shaft leaving
      1 - 2 inches past the arrow.
      2. Secure the burlap with the wire.
      3. Duct tape the burlap to the shaft to ensure it does not slide up
      the shaft when shot.
      4. Cut the burlap hanging over the end of the arrow parallel to the
      shaft so it flares when shot.
      5. Cut in a self nock
      6. Dip the shaft in kerosene and allow to drip dry momentarily.
      7. Allow the burlap to dry for 1 hour (angled down so the kerosene
      does not run up the shaft)
      8. Shoot (for best results allow the flaming burlap to burn for at
      least 30 seconds before shooting.)
