Painting the Tower, Part 2

November 2005

Despite unexpected delays due to hurricanes and a Northeaster, the painting of the light has been completed.  

The vinyl envelope that covered the tower to contain overspray from the paint made it difficult to document the progress, so we have very few photographs of the project. Just before the painting was totally completed, the storms arrived, and the force of the high winds tore away the vinyl. That was an impressive sight, but it canceled our planned "unveiling". J. Goodison Co. finished the final touch-ups on October 27, 2005, and the tower looks magnificent once more.  

Future plans include replacing the exterior door of the tower with an authentic replica of the original, painting the interior of the light and restoring the oil house.  

Thank you for your interest and continued support.
