Lurcher Lightship No. 4
Lurcher Lightship No. 4 was a floating lighthouse that was stationed off Lurcher Shoals, west of Yarmouth Nova Scotia. It would remain on station for 28 days then go to Yarmouth for a crew change. Equiipped with a powerful light and fog horn, it would warn mariners of the dangerous shoals. It was replaced by buoys and in these photos it travelled to the Saint John Coast Guard Base to be decommissioned as a lightship. It was later transferred to the Coast Guard College in Sidney, N.S. where it was converted to a training ship. Photos by Bob Boudreau
