According to the 05 July 2011 CG Notice to Mariners the Cape May Light has been repaired and is now "watching properly". The optic in this light is likely a DCB-224 that was installed in 2002 to replace a DCB-36 for which parts were not available. It now appears there is a parts problem with the 224. The next move might well be to plan to replace the DCB-224 with a Vega VRB-25 or similar.
