“They That Go Down To The Sea in Ships”

is the name of a 1923 monument to the fisherman of Gloucester, Massachusetts.

The sculpture was created by Leonard Craske from a sketch of a painting by A.W. Buhler  showing a schooner helmsman with his eyes fixed on the sails while he held close to the wind to avoid dangerous rocks.
