The Overfalls Lightship was the last riveted lightship built. When you purchase a rivet, you will receive a certificate inscribed with your name and the exact location of your rivet. Your name will be added to the Overfalls Rivet Log located in the kiosk at the entryway to the Overfalls Lightship. (Of course the actual rivet will remain riveted in place on the Lightship.)
Don't forget to indicate on the invoice the name(s) you wish entered on the Rivet Log.
