  • Admission is included in the Maritime Museum admission. This boat was anchored in the harbor to guide boats in. Later supplanted by a lighthouse. It is just like it was when it was on duty. you see where they slept, ate, prepared the meals and played games in their downtime. Lots of descriptive panels of the fuel it needed to keep the light running and all the food they needed to stock up on as storms would prevent resupply for weeks.
