A Coast Guard crew in Charlottetown, P. E. I., constructed the replacement tower, which is made of of three trapezoidal pieces light enough to be airlifted to remote sites. Once assembled, the tower is covered by vinyl siding that resembles cedar shingles but will not have to be regularly scraped and painted. "You'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference unless you walk right up to it and actually touch it and find that it's actually vinyl siding," claims Dave Smith, supervisor of maritime civil infrastructure with the Coast Guard.
This new design will save the Coast Guard a significant sum in maintenance costs and will be used to replace similar square, pyramidal towers when they are determined to be beyond repair.
As the front tower was in a less-visible position along the shore, it was replaced by a skeletal tower with slatting on one side.
