Ajax landing.

Before the fish are put ashore nets have to be taken off for mending.......
happy in their work.......
a quick cuppa and a few words with the old man on his birthday back in Alderney.......
won't be long before the letters are painted over.......
father-in-law on the quay checking things over........
how many men does it take to raise the landing gear?.......
a quick sausage sarny.......


mission control in the wheelhouse........
and it's off with the hatch to reveal a fishroom stacked out with boxes......
carefully does it........
dolphin friendly fisherman......
with his pingers........
up and away go the boxes........
another attempt at the Indian rope trick......
just as well the new boxes were ordered without AH32 on them as would be usual, the Ajax being registered in Arbroath is having to be re-registered with TO32.........
having run out of boxes the last day's hake fishing has gone into a pound.......
boxing the winged hake........
before they go ashore........
and on to the quay.
