The lantern now resides at the Sag Harbor Yacht Yard on Bay Street in Sag Harbor. We have removed the ventilator ball, the four air intake shields below the windows and we are working on removing all the pieces securing the window openings. The ventilator ball and chimney will need to be recast at a foundry specializing in historic renovations. Most of the window pieces can be used.
The entire lantern will be sand blasted and then coated with a moisture resistant paint similar that used on bridges. We are advised that the paint should last over 50 years when applied properly. A temporary structure will be build to house the lantern for sandblasting and coating.
