Climb aboard the Huron Lightship for a look at the crews quarters and hear stories about the Huron’s duties.
Lightships were like floating lighthouses anchored in areas where it was too deep, expensive or impractical to construct a lighthouse. Lightships displayed a light at the top of a mast and in areas of fog also sounded a fog signal and radio beacon.
The HURON Lightship sounded her fog horn signal in a 3 second blast every 30 seconds and was known locally as “Old B.O.” because of the familiar sound her horn made.
