Author(s):
Abstract:
Stationed some thirty miles southeast of Southport, the 133-foot long, 30-foot wide, lightship that marks Frying Pan Shoals is set to be replaced. Complimented by ten seamen, the lightship guards the mouth of the Cape Fear River, alerting coastwise ships of the treacherous shoals nearby.
