USCG Post-Sandy Inspection

On February 4th, 2013, Master Chief Jason Wiley and the good men of the United States Coast Guard Aids To Navigation (ATON) Team took us along on their first visit to Romer Shoal Light since Hurricane Sandy. Due to degradation to the breakwater and rock collapse into the boarding area, getting on to the light was deemed unsafe. Apparent structural damage, riprap collapse, access ladder collapse and rough seas cause the Coxswain to wave off any boarding attempt.
