We arrive on the Island 12/2/10 to inspect the work done by Keith to maintain the lighthouse.

The lighthouse once again looks “pristine” with a new coat of lime and an amazing amount of work done by Keith and his crew.

The newly painted oil house once again looks great. Keith stripped the entire building and repainted it with an epoxy paint hoping that it will withstand the weather better.

The view looking up into the new lantern room. Keith completely restored the lantern room at the request of the DILS board. It looks fantastic and will keep the lantern and electronics clean and easier to maintain.

The new lantern stand fabricated by Keith. The batteries will be getting their own “box” to be stored in at a later date.
