"Tom Butt is also the person who runs the non-profit organization that owns the lighthouse. He has worked with the business for almost 40 years and announces that it puts some requirements on those seeking the job."
"It takes experience of the hospitality and shipping. In addition, you need to have a license to operate tourist boat, issued by the u.s. coast guard."
