The USCG reports 22 US
Lightships are still afloat in the US. The first 16 “LV”
designated ships include 8 on the National Historical
Register (79, 83, 87, 103, 112, 101, 116, 118). The list also
includes #75 which is now a power lighter in New York harbor,
#84 which is gutted awaiting becoming scrap, #85 which has
been converted for ocean research work, #102 which is used
for crab processing and #111 which is a hulk .Of the 6 WLV
ships built by the Coast Guard all survive except WLV-189
which was sunk in 1994. That leaves 16 ships that are
floating in the US and somewhat recognizable as lightships.
WLV-196 is from the outside in the worst condition—Painted
white and blue with rusted hull. She serves as a Marine Bio
Researcher in Alaska. It is possible to put the ship hull
number (ex. WLV-605) in your search engine and get up to date
location information on these vessels. For more historical
information you can visit the USCG Historians site
