Wrangell reflects on the sea, loss with proposed Mariners’ Memorial

A group of mostly fishermen is fundraising to build a mariners’ memorial in Wrangell. Organizers say it’s a way to remember those lost at sea. Gig Decker has been a commercial fisherman and diver for decades. “Every single year, for 33 years of commercial diving, I got the hell scared out of me and I came close to drowning,” Decker says. Decker and others are fundraising to build a $300,000 memorial at Heritage Harbor in Wrangell. So far, they have 200 members offering local support. Board members are soliciting larger corporate and foundation donations as well. >click to read< 21:06
