O'Brien and other museum officials plan to go the Trenton later this week to meet with representatives of Gov. Corzine's office to discuss the possibility of receiving some funds from the federal stimulus package for the $7 million project....

... The plans call for two buildings, both exterior replicas of U.S. Life Saving Service stations. The first is a model of Life Saving Station No. 10, a Victorian-type station that was built on East Avenue in nearby Bay Head in 1884. It will serve as an educational pavilion, with a boat-building classroom, space for exhibits, museum offices and restrooms.

The second building will be a replica of the 1876 Centennial Life Saving Station. The two-level building will feature a ground-floor base with a lobby, a 120-seat auditorium, an exhibitions gallery, a boatbuilding classroom, a snack bar and public restrooms.
