Lightship NANTUCKET Receives Dry-Docking Grant

The U.S. Lightship Museum (USLM) was recently awarded a $575,000 grant from the Community Preservation Act (CPA)-Boston, directed towards the restoration of Nantucket Lightship/LV-112. The grant will allow the historic lightship to enter its next phase of critically needed hull maintenance, structural restoration and preservation work needed for the lightship’s forward lower hold’s transverse floor frames and port/starboard ballast tanks. We sincerely thank the City of Boston, its Councilors and the Community Preservation Committee for this transformational funding.

This is the Nantucket dry-docked in 2011.
