Dedicated in 1981 to the hard working commercial fishermen whose indomitable spirits will not be forgotten.

Commissioned by Edwin Erickson,
Mayor of Bayfield, 1970-1976 & 1980-1988

Designed by Harold Kerr (1909-1981)
Constructed by Brian Kerr and Erickson Marine

The pilings were salvaged from the steamer "Ireland" which ran aground at Gull Island. The anchor chain came from the "Pretoria" which sank off Outer Island in 1905. The timbers are part of the ore dock at Ashland. The largest piece of sandstone came from Outer Island while the other stones were brought from Sand, Oak, Manitou, Cat, and Outer Islands.
