the lightship Zhong Sha Jiao was build in Jiangnan Shipyard in 1911, by engineer Zhu Zhi Yao, but the lantern comes from Germany,
later moved to Taku use, ship rename as Taku lightship during this period,
after retirement, transfer to the Yu Nui San lighthouse, display as a museum ship, change back to the original name Zhong Sha Jiao lightship,
