Cool boat!

I wonder if it's docked all the time or whether it's still sea-going.

Nifty ship. Never heard of a "lightship" before. Is that like a floating lighthouse? Very cool.

Raven:
Yes, that is floating lighthouse.

Rinkly Rimes:
Nowdays I think it is docked all the time. It is now serving as a restaurant.
Never had it own engines. Used to be towed to its lightship location every spring.
