I have added two new pages to my site. They are the Listion RR in Delaware and Sandy Point Shoal in Maryland. I am working to add new pages of the life-saving stations that we have visited and hope to have them ready for you soon.

I am also going back through and adding picutures to other pages and will let you know when they are ready.

I hope you enjoy the updates!

this picture shows the Chesepeake with one light on the forward mast. I'm trying to find out whether it ever had a second, backup light, on the other mast

Stephen ...

A lighthouse ... plus ducks ... plus deer

It doesn't get much better than that.

Thanks for sharing.

Fred, I never doubted that Chesepeake didn't have two lights. The bottom picture doesn't seem to have two lights, and I know from my visit that there aren't two now. My question is where did the second light disappear too?

Sorry Peter,I was trying to work out dates when she had two lights.

1935 She did
1965 She didn't

A thought--I've seen pictures of some of the lightships with what appears to be a radar antenna mounted on the mast,the Coastguard history site gives LV116 receiving detection radar in 1945,the same year that she went back on station at Chesapeake after duty as an Examination Vessel.

There is much lightship and related information here that was complied by people who served on these vessels.

thanks, Dave. This verifies that Chesepeake originally had a light on both masts, and the light was taken done from the rear mast in 1965. The question still remains as to what happened to that light. It would make a great exhibit on the ship itself which is a living history museum today as it is open for the touring public

Thanks Stephen!

I always enjoy your ever growing web site.
