This is very cool information. I think this winter might be the time to read it. I wonder how long it would take to plow through all of the pages and how much one could digest at one sitting. I think I would have to take notes and this would lead me to do more reading.

I agree with on how informative this information is. How many pages did you end up printing out?

Lots of interesting information. Probably best used by groups working on restoring a lighthouse.

This handbook will be very useful for our restoration efforts at Harbor of Refuge Light. We are constantly challenged on how to do different projects and this will be a very good source of information to guide us in the proper direction. RED
