This might have some promise as a method for ALF and others to get some lighthouse preservation money. :) Light dues for ships entering Portland Harbor.

It is interesting to note that this current light dues debate nearly parallels the debates in the First Congress in 1789 about the proposed Lighthouse Act. The southern states had less need for lighthouses than the northern states but were heavy importers of consumer goods from England. Because of the proposed duties both the south and the north would have to pay more for imported goods yet most of this duty revenue would be spent on northern lighthouses where the need for lighthouses was much greater.

And a question. What is the lighthouse in the photo above?
