The good ship Mayflower





Fresh out of the boatyard shed is the latest new build for the Cornish fleet...



the Mayflower is the latest ring netter in the now familiar Ocean Fish colours...



nearing completion...




with her new style prop designed to minimise acoustic interference in the water when using her fishfinding sonar to fund the shoals of sardines...




she is a big boat for a big bloke...



here is soon to be skipper of the new boat, Pete 'Two Kits' Buckland...



this is a kit...



kits were used on the market years ago for big fish like ling, cod and ray - a kit weighs ten stone - there is positively no connection between that fact and Pete's nick-name.
