Mopped up!


The  James RH ws tasked with going to pick up and tow in the WSS which had managed to get the starboard side cod end mopped up in her propellor while fishing north of the Scillies...


soon to be ex-harbour master, Andrew Munson heads back back to her marina berth past the Breton trawler Le Sillon...



visiting tug, Christina...


Little Graham takes a call from on high checking the boat is indeed round the right way...


looks like there is a little work to do to release the starboard side gear which has been caught up in the propeller...


young Mr Hill helms the Chickadee into postion...


to help push the mopped up WSS against the quay...


time for a dip...


the tow boat now makes her way in...


#throughthegaps ...


and into a berth after towing in the WSS...


surveying the scene...


diving support hands down another sharpened knife to the diver...


meanwhile, back at the fish market...


the hake netter Ajax is landing...


pausing for thought...


and contemplation...


before another four boxes come ashore...


Victory!
