The Lift Off

The "Lift off" went off without any problems thanks to Chesterfield Associates and Bob Coco Construction. They both donated their services. The lantern was lifted off, taken to Sag Harbor and is now at the Sag Harbor Yacht Yard where it will be restored before it is reinstalled on the lighthouse.

Meeting Notes October 15th

Plans are underway to "Lift Off" the lantern. Weather permitting, the lantern will be taken by barge to the Long Wharf in Sag Harbor. We will restore the lantern during 2014. it will then be replaced atop the lighthouse.

Newly Coated Lantern

The Removal of the lantern was a result of an offer by Chesterfield Associates to send the resources for the job. In October, Dave Allen, the founder of the marine construction company arrived in Sag Harbor on a 75' landing craft with a 50 ton crane on board. The next day we set off from Sag Harbor along with Bob Coco of Bob Coco Construction to the lighthouse. Within two hours the lantern was removed from its perch where it had rested for 145 years.

When it arrived at the Long Wharf in Sag Harbor, it was met by a number of reporters and photographers from various East End news organizations. 

The Sag Harbor Yacht yard sent a trailer and tow and it was taken down Bay Street to the Yacht Yard.
