What's new at Ledge Lighthouse?
We had to cancel 2 trips out to Ledge so far this spring. One because of rain and the other due to wind. We have one rescheduled for early May.
The goals of the trip is twofold.
#1. To show the State of CT team what we plan to do with the Grant money and get their approval as it is different that what we originally submitted. Need to get the final Ok.
#2. Detailed plan for the solar install cable runs, measurement of the mounting brackets, space on the CG 4x8 mounting backboard in the utility room and location of the batteries in that room as well.
Three other projects for 2021.
1. Repair cement landing collar foundation ( I spoke to the contract that repaired the foundation in 2017) He can do the work in in August.
2. Install a marine toilet with a holding tank.
3. Patch and paint the white foundation. I have found some rubberized material that I applied last year as test. It is white so requires no painting (Flex-Seal). The patch made it through the winter and we will patch with that and then paint the entire foundation using the paint from Edison Paint Company in Ridgefield that was used on the NL light.
We have a CT license master electrician on the LLF BOD. He will do all the electric connections and testing to ensure all is within code.
