WLM 558 (The Anthony Petit) was launched in January 1999. One of the new Keeper Class of Buoy Tenders named after Lighthouse Keepers. In 1946 Anthony Petit was assigned as keeper of the Scotch Cap Lighthouse in Alaska,a truly Coast Guard isolated duty station. In April 1946 an earthquake sent a tsunami over 100 feet high crashing into the lightstation, killing Chief Petit and his four-man crew. DIV>
