This website is dedicated to the lighthouse keepers of British Columbia, Canada, and for the general public who want to learn what life was/is like on a lighthouse. This site also supports the fight against the automation and destruction of ALL lighthouses and the environment surrounding them.
Also available here is a large database (db) of names of British Columbia (BC) Lighthouse Keepers – past and present.
Plus, I will toss in anything lighthouse that seems interesting – such as Coast Guard, ships, helicopters, hovercraft, personnel, changes, weather, museums, paintings, websites, catalogs, art, toys, drawings, videos, books, manuals, music, poetry, etc.
I would also like to include environmental issues that affect the lands and oceans on the BC coast such as pollution, garbage, possible oil spills, shipwrecks, etc. as these are all part of the role of the lighthouse keeper who sees and knows everything on the coast.
Everybody that likes lighthouses likes lighthouse information and memorabilia! Make sure you check out my Facebook page too.
For earlier notes or suggestions, please see QUICK INFO in the header bar above.
Please use the INDEX, also in the header bar above or try the Google Search box (top upper right of page) for locating stories.
The following was downloaded from the Vintage Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) Facebook page here. On that page they said:
And now through the magic of Hollywood, we give you … the reason why we don’t let John McGrath drive CCG hovercraft any more.
Yes that’s really one of the CCG SAR hovercraft from Sea Island.
Yes that’s really the Sea Island OIC Capt McGrath driving.
Yes Jackie Chan really broke his ankle jumping from the bridge onto the hovercraft’s deck.
Hovercraft chase out of Rumble in the Bronx ….
Gives you a good idea about Hovercraft skirts as they transverse over different terrain.
