The Huron Lightship

Just a picture of the Huron Lightship as I was waiting for the Paul R. Tregurtha appear.
The Huron was built in 1918 by the Consolidated Shipbuilding Company out of Morris Heights, New York.  She operated primarly near Port Huron in Southern Lake Huron.  In 1948, she was refitted for diesel power by Defoe Shipbuilding Company.  She was decomissioned in 1970 and replaced by a buoy.  Currently she is owned by Port Huron.
