Diamond Shoals Lightship

Record #:
The Diamond Shoals Lightship guards the greatest area of quicksand in the world. Located 12 miles off Cape Point (Hatteras) and some 20 miles from the village of Hatteras, she shines the light and blows her horn to protect approaching vessels to the North Carolina Outer Banks. The crew goes for weeks without visitors, except for the monthly arrival of the supply tender.
