I read the article. It was interesting to read about the work the Coast Guard does concerning lighthouses. Thanks for sharing this story.

from Stephen Jones' book Harbour of Refuge, it was apparent that even in the best of times (summer, 70 + degrees) the landing area and outside areas all over could be quite slick. One can only imagine how very slippery and chilling it was for the ATon team.
