Sand Island Light House
Damage to Cast Iron Ring on West
Side of the Base of the Lighthouse....
The lighthouse base (i.e., plinth) has upper (i.e. cornice) and
lower (i.e. base) rings of cast iron. The cast iron rings are
badly deteriorated from rust and severe pounding from rock boulders
that have been moved during the many storms to which the lighthouse
has been exposed over the years.
