"They mark our passage as a race of men
Earth will not see such ships as those again."
- John Masefield
Dedicated this 19th day of May, in the year 2000. To those courageous mariners who guided their ships through perilous waters, carrying cargo and people. Thier contributions have been so much a part of our history. May they never be forgotten.
