The Hog Island light looks exactly like the Plum Beach Light because the two were made from the same "cookie-cutter" pattern in the late 1800s. Each piece of their sides are marked by Roman numerals and their dimensions are identical. The only real structural difference is the additional rip-rap around Plum Beach that was placed after the ice-floes from the severe winter of 1917-18 damaged the lighthouse.
We ventured out with the 20-foot tripod in late summer for this shot and the tripod was placed in about 17 feet of water.
