Sundown landing for the Ajax in Newlyn


Lonely crabber Intuition nestles between members of the beam trawler fleet...



as the netter Ajax makes her way in through the gaps...



past the ever increasing number of Under 10m inshore trawlers and scallopers...



currently filling the harbour...



some of these purpose built boats...



even include a conveyor system like their big sisters in the fleet...



all three of the Falmouth fleet...



back on the Ajax it's a long way down from atop the shelterdeck...



to where it's all smiles beaming up below in the fishroom where the boxes of #hake are being hooked up ready for landing...




the mighty hand of skipper Alan makes light work of lifting six boxes at a time.
