The Baltimore Maritime MuseumLightship 116 "Chesapeake" was built in 1930 as a manned navigational beacon and fulfilled this role under the US Lightship Service and the US Coast Guard for nearly 40 years. On station in all weather and sea conditions, lightships and their crews guided vital maritime traffic to and from American shores for generations. There are no longer any lightships on duty; they have all been replaced by automatic beacons.
