Just for the record it’s the “Man at the Wheel” statue.
This from wikimapia-
“Gazing towards the sea with stern look of determination, this statue of a seaman at the wheel represents and pays homage to the maritime history of the Gloucester and Cape Ann area, and bears the inscription “They that go down to the sea in ships, 1623-1923.”.
Gloucester’s most famous landmark, this bronze statue was sculpted by Leonard Craske in 1923. It is located on Stacey Boulevard, overlooking Gloucester Harbor. The statue of a Gloucester fisherman, dressed in oilskins and standing at the wheel of his schooner was designed in heroic size: 1 ½ scale. It is dedicated to the over 10,000 Gloucester fishermen lost at sea since the early 1600’s. The base of the statue quotes Psalm 107, “They that go down to the sea in ships.”
