Oil mural of the great storm of 1962 painted by W.P. Isaacs, a member of the USCG and stationed in Lewes during the storm. It depicts members of the USCG ensuring boats are tied down securely while gale warning flags are flying in front of the then-USCG Station on Lewes Beach. The building is currently the Lewes station of the Pilots' Association for the Bay & River Delaware. Pilots' Association for the Bay & River Delaware donated the mural to the Society when it took control of the station in 1979.
