Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 31 March 2014

Monday morning's muted morning skies



High water during one of the biggest tides for the year, but with little wind the bad flooding Newlyn has experienced in recent months it passes without incident...


though the old lugger, Children's Friend has succumbed yet again to an ingress of water...


while others like the inshore boat My Lass take advantage of the high tide to moor the boat where she can dry out and get some work done below the waterline more easily...


the grey boxes are just some of the 225 landed by the Ajax from a two day trip, the red boxes from the inshore trawler Imogen III...


New Harmony, one of the inshore boats responsible for landing the best quality fish on the market...


a  cracking example of a bull huss...


eyes down for the bidders...


cracking hake from the Govenek of Ladram...


early mornings are not so light now the clacks have gone forwards...


and this morning it was fifty shades of blue as the sun tried to break through the heavy overcast sky...


time to top up with fuel for the visiting Brixham beamer, Carhelmar...


ready and loaded and bound for the Scillies...


equipped for all eventualities, the Dutch beam trawler is also rigged with twin rig trawls on her stern...
