Man at the Wheel.

Fisherman's Memorial

Bronze sailor at the wheel of a ship battling a storm, commemorating the Gloucester fishermen lost at sea. A low wall near the statue has the year and names of all the men who have died. The statue is in Stacy Esplanade overlooking Gloucester Harbor.

Gloucester is the same town that lost the men of the Andrea Gail in "The Perfect Storm."
