lighter
 n.— «Like a few people here, Brett does a bit of everything. He also has his quota of “road cows,” a small number of beef cattle each family is allowed to let wander over the public land of the island. He used to enjoy working on the “lighters,” the long boats on which, due to the lack of a harbour, everything is still brought onshore.» —“Taking it easy on Norfolk Island” by Mark Broatch Sunday Star-Times (New Zealand) Dec. 12, 2004.
