Plaque :
THE FISHERMAN`S PRAYER
God grant that I may live to fish      When nestled in your landing net
For another shining day                  As I lay peacefully asleep
But when my final cast is made      You`ll smile at me and judge
I then most humbly pray.                 That I`m to good to keep
IN LOVING MEMORY OF THOSE WE HAVE LOST TO THE SEA
