The Seaman!

Sculpture located on Barkers Island in Superior Wisconsin!

I CHALLENGE THE DEEP
WITH GOD AS MY HELMSMAN, 
COURAGE MY VESSEL,
AND THE LOVE OF THOSE 
WHO WAIT ON SHORE,
... MY STRENGTH

    1. Well it took me awhile online to find out this statue dates from 1970 and was intended as a memorial to the Edmund Fitzgerald crew, plus the crews of all ships that have sunk on Lake Superior.

      Denny, do you know what those large round things he is holding represent?

  2. Just looked up the history of the Edmund Fitzgerald, the crew and sinking. Can't imagine how rough it must have been to sink a ship that was so large.
