With 2009 right around the corner. Any guesses as to what the new releases will be?

I am hoping for Wood Island, Maine.

I have it from a very knowledgeable and "hands-on" guy that there will be at least one from Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana.

My success rate at guessing what will be released has some what dwindled. I still think Ponham Rocks, East Providence, RI, will be forth coming (sooner or later).

The last Legacy listed the states for next years releases. Not sure if this is partial or complete list.

Surpised I don't see California, I thought it already leaked out that a LE of Point Cabrillo was due in 2009.

Looks like no Duluth lights or Minnesota Point yet as Minnesota was not listed.

Curious to see what's for Oregon and Georgia. Maybe a GLOW or some Gone but not forgotten lights?

Delaware??? Could be Harbour of Refuge? Maybe Delaware Beakwater?

Maryland - Many possibilities, but hoping for Point Lookout or Blackstone Light.

New York - Huntington Harbor or Gull Island (as it was) would be great.

Maine - Wood Island ?

Florida - Something from the keys?.

Massachusetts - Some Chops??? maybe the CS pieces???

Rhode Island - I'd like to see Bob M happy again, so my hope is for Ponham Rocks.

Hawaii - Long overdue, should be interesting.

Louisiana - Sabine Pass finally??? maybe??? And will we have two for Louisiana since the 2008 piece had problems?

Canada - Almost the same feel as a US light. Should be a good choice. Too many to guess!

Ireland - I'm not personally thrilled about this one, but hey it might be time to start an Euro section in my collection.

Alabama - Not on the Legacy list, but missed it's 2008 release due to production problems. Hoping this is not a GLOW or LLOM, but a Gone but not forgotten of Chocaw Point.

We should be hearing about the first batch in a few weeks!!! cool

The 2008 piece had problems?? Explain, please. 2008 Releases doesn't have a Louisiana piece listed on the HL site.

This has been mentioned in a few threads over the last month or so. It was a rumor for a while before that. A couple HL dealers verified this recently. Seems there was production problems with the last two Grand Tour pieces(Louisiana & Alabama). We might see them by mid-2009.

Does anyone think we'll get an early Christmas look at 2009 Harbour Lights? It sure would be a great to see what's happening.

I was about to respond that it would be a nice Christmas present from HL to post the list by Christmas Eve, but expected to see them the usual time about a week later. Seeing John's responce, it looks like sometime early January. frown

This never was a thought before now but in the AB line what about "freighters"? I would think that this might be an area to look at, and get some feedback on what people think of this idea.
There are alot of very neat Freighters present and alot (on the bottom of the Great Lakes) that would be awsome collector pc's. Just a thought....

Freighters tend to be very large, so I don't know how doable they are. I guess if they could be scaled down enough and still look good, it would be possible.

My thought for an AB would be a fishing boat in peril with a Coast Guard helicopter in rescue mode.

While a freighter is a good thought you have to consider that commercial boats were not very popular with the collectors in the beginning. The percentage of collectors that have spent time on a frighter versus a Coast Guard/Navy/Light vessel is very small.

Someone from The Forum once proposed showing a USN submarine passing by New London Ledge Lighthouse. I'd buy it even though NLL has already been done.

The New London Ledge Light was suggested because that is near where the Sub base is located and subs pass by the light quite often.

It was suggested by Ron Foster, who worked for many years building those subs at EB.

How about a sub passing The Arizona Memorial , a beautiful HB. Pearl Harbour has a very large sub base.

How about the Anchor Bay release of the WWII Taney. The WWII Taney is the tribute to the men and women that died at Pearl Harbour. We have a living memorial with the Taney. How often can you take a tour of a ship that's been at Pearl Harbour and is still around as a living museum?

PS: Have you bought the WWII Taney or the modern day Taney yet? They are still available for you to pay tribute to these mem and women.

Good Wednesday Afternoon!

Just to let you know that several key dealers will have the ability to post the 2009 Winter Release list at midnight tonight. Remember, it is the Year of the Collector's Choice so this will be another exciting year.

Happy New Year.

Finally, one of my wish lights have been made (HL373). Thanks HL for listening......

HL802 is going to make a lot of people happy as well! Very nicely done. Must have!

Clearly from the latest releases, folks at HL do read the posts on the collectors forum and listen to collectors requests.

Happy New Year!!

Those of us who went to New Orleans and "Lighthouseing the Gulf Coast" with Dave, have been holding a secrete for over 6 mo's as promised. Is this piece in the new announcement, can we talk about it now?

Given that the "key" (4) dealers have not posted to the general public the "sneak peek" as promoted by Tony C, the whole thing is sort of ridiculous. When I went on my dealer's website, (one of the "chosen people"), there were "x" on the images and some release HL numbers. There was also a note saying that if you purchased a piece during 2008 (yes, I had) and asked for an HL release email (guess I had not) you would get an email with the new releases (no I didn't get it; yes I am looking for a new dealer....)

If you purchase from Cape Annie's during 2008 you got a sneek peek access. That's probably how Christopher knew.

THANK YOU PAUL for posting the new release list. I purchased my 2008 pieces from HL dealers who weren't on the exclusive dealer list.

All the photos will be posted at HarbourLights.com by Friday evening. Tony's given those dealers a head start on purpose.

Love that Umpqua lens! Wow!

As Tony noted this is the year of the "Collectors' Choice". Who submitted which lights on Paul's list above?

Since I won't see pics of these till this weekend, I took a few minutes to research that actual lighthouses.

It will be interesting to see what the actual replica will look like.

Will the HL369 Buffalo Entrance NY be the north side or south side? I'm hoping for the south side.

Will the HL370 Carysfort Reef FL be too similar to Fowley Rocks or American Shoal?

Will the HL372 Pas a L’Outre LA be as it currently is, or as it was? I'm hoping it is as it was with keepers house.

Which Port Washington lighthouse is it?

Looking forward to the Franks Island piece.

I am thrilled to have the Port Washington, WI light finally produced, even though its design is kinda "quirky".

It would have been "sweeter" if a set was made to include the old light as a Society Redemption piece and the breakwater as the Society Gift piece. But, I'm not complaining, its finally here! It has been a long 7 years waiting.... wink

Perhaps the old light (located on the hill) will be produced in the future now that it has been restored to its former glory!

Guess I will have to now go out and buy several of these for my family, since they are originally from "Port"!

Yippie!

Wow!!! I hit the jackpot !!!

Wickywacky & Paul, thanks for the info and pic. I was hoping the Buffalo light was the Southside, the Port Washington was the breakwater, and Pas a L’Outre included the keepers house.

This is a great batch of releases. Looking forward to seeing pics of all eight LE's.

I will be adding my first lens to my collection.

Very good on Port Washington. At one point I thought the discussion was on the old light, but the new one is also an interesting design.

Hopefully the images will appear at HL's web site yet today.

DITTO to what Bob said...I couldn't express this any better than that! With the cutout of the lantern room, it really shows the true perspective of the lens.

Harry...you rock!

Glad to see Carysfort. It does look different then the other Reef Lights. The keepers house is round and it has the balcony on the bottom (not presently on the real lighthouse, but one day it will be restored).

Somebody who was at the Regional please email me with this "secret". I have no recall of what Tony said so it's a pretty safe assumption that I won't spill the beans. First thing to go is, in fact, memory. . . .

Sandy, Here's a clue.

It's not just want we heard... it's want we saw as well. Something that was sitting on the table at the Regional.

Dose this trigger any memory's?

I like the 1200 edition sizes. Makes the people that want to sit on the fence make a decision and either buy or don't buy because they don't have time to procrastinate. He who hesitates is lost. Maybe we'll have a few quick sellouts to get the secondary market blood flowing again.

I predict that the Umqua River will sell out before the release of the second half/year Harbour Lights.

This is without a doubt, a supreme effort put forth by the Harbour Light's Team. Wow!!! It's drop-dead beautiful. I can't wait to receive this edition.

I miss all the lighthouses having the blue sky background on the website. Does this mean someone else took the pictures other than Paul or did the blue sky just get retired.

The lens is breathtaking!

Perhaps the Harbour Lights model of Fort Carroll will help get some interest up to restore it.

I am trying to slow down with the economy the way it is but... Can't resist any Florida lights and yes, Harry did another fabulous job with the Umpqua River lens. Finally since I love unusual lights how could I pass up the new Port Washington light? I have a photo of Bill standing in the archway and never thought I would get the replica.

I wonder if there will be room for my collection when I move to the poor house?!

Happy to see Carysfort Reef. That leaves just one more Florida reef light. Maybe next year?
