I just got back from a vacation on the East Coast. I was there on the 27th of July. It was uprighted then. I really could not get very close for a good picture, but I do have one. When I figure out how to upload pictures on this site I will post one.

I wonder how much one would have to bid to outbid the scape dealers.
I also wonder is it sea worthy if someone buys it from another area.

I was just in New Bedford. I would say the lightship is well past being restorable, unless a lightship lover with millions to spend on it comes along and buys it. It's a sad sight.

Jeremy,

Do you have any photos to share of it?
