THE NAME: "Lightship #85" is the name of a wooden light-vessel (aka. a floating-lighthouse) that was built in NJ in 1910, then stationed along the Nantucket Shoals where its purpose was to warn Europe-bound ships navigating past the shallow waters surrounding the island. Like the light-vessel, Kevin was born in NJ and now calls Nantucket his home.
