                Trial Run for the Door Delivery

In hopes of making delivery of the new door to Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse easier, the Delaware Bay and River Cooperative, Inc. was willing to donate the services of a heavy-duty crane based on the deck of the oil spill response boat DelRiver. In late March, Eugene Johnson, president of the co-op, Gardner Knight (left) its Lewes manager, Charles Myers of the Army Corps of Engineers, Judith Roales and Red Moulinier of the Foundation, and others, made a trial run to see if the 168-foot boat could safely maneuver close enough in to the breakwater to swing the heavy iron door and frame aboard the light station.

Unfortunately, the answer was no.

Nevertheless, the Foundation is grateful to DBRC for its efforts and its willingness to help.
