Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Tuesday, 18 February 2014

Newlyn Harbour is now #openforbusiness as the fleet are all at sea


Tom is cast in an eerie glow as a mist rolls off the Lidden across Newlyn Green...



on the market prices are still sky-high for the handful of boxes on Tuesday's meagre market...



even a few brown crab made good money...



a tale of woe for the big beam trawler Sapphire II as her main winch has broken - this meant that skipper Mike has had to drop both huge beam trawls on the sea bed...




off the harbour before getting carefully into position and stowing the two huge derricks - with the good chance that the boat will have to go to a shipyard in Holland for repairs...



full moon over the harbour early hours...



and some keen holidaymakers make it down the quay to see what is going on...



with the first fine weather since 2013 most of the boats have made it back to sea...



except for...



the Sapphire II awaiting news on the winch...




all quiet on the lifeboats after last night's escapades.
