  • 2. A New Kind of Lighthouse by Sharpe, Bill
     
    Author(s):
    Abstract:
    North Carolina's next to newest lighthouse is Frying Pan Light, which in 1964 replaced the lightship stationed at the end of Frying Pan Shoals. While its location 34 miles offshore from Southport will render it invisible to most vacationers, it is already a familiar sight to the legion if sport fishermen who take charter boats to these fishing grounds. The new light, called a \"Texas tower\" because it is patterned after off-shore oil rigs, is built in 46 feet of water, constructed of steel girders on pilings, and is topped with living quarters, a helipad, and the \"business\" part of the structure including lights, horns, and other equipment aimed at the maintenance of safe passage in the surrounding waters.
