Man Of Fortune: Beloved Fisherman to Receive Memorial Statue at Shem Creek

When dawn breaks on Shem Creek, there will soon be a glimmer on the water like never before.

His name is Captain Wayne Magwood and soon his legacy will forever be enshrined as a testament to the role he played in preserving the area’s rich maritime history.
