This afternoon we received pictures of the Wisconsin Point piece from Harry. Needless to say, it looks great! Harry will be sending the paint sample to Paul so he can shoot the piece in detail. In the meantime:



You may see a larger copy of the image here

Harry, the sculptor and the painter have combined to give us another fantastic light.

After seeing the first photos of the finished product, I think I had better get my order in now for two. This one could sell out fast. I don't want to miss out! What a great HL!

Wow!!! Looks really nice. Can't wait till I get mine.

One note: Why does a depth of 2 7/8" seem very narrow?

That is kind of narrow. Waugoshance which is similar has that approximate measurement if you measure the depth of the base of the light only.

I ordered two of the ELL but only one Wisconsin Point although it is a really fantastic piece.

It is not going to be a real wide piece since this light is built on top of a breakwater. This keeps things in proportion.

Take a look at the image showing the flag - this is an excellent representation of what you would actually find if you were to cut apart the breakwater: lots of stones.

Also look at the stains on the side of the breakwater. They are so realistic looking.

The CF volunteer crew, Harry, Tony, and all the HL staff have gone off the edge this time.

Can't wait to see Pauls photos.

I originally planned on buying one, but looking at it how awesome it is and that two, will increase my chances of getting a double digit, I now am planning to order two.

Congratulations to the forum members, you picked a great light.
As usual, Harry did a wonderful job.

Dave:
How do we get a copy of that neat brochure?

That is a digital photo board that Harry was kind enough to put together for us. You can download a copy of the full size image and print it out.

I really impressed and I'm not even a fan of breakwater lights. Fantastic job to everyone involved.

Have already ordered mine. Looks like it was a good decision.
Great detail. I'm sure it will draw favorable comments from friends who view it in my curio cabinet.
