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.
