Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Sunday, 28 September 2014

Newlyn welcomes the Mayflower, not full of Pilgrims just yet.


Battery rockers ready to roll...


almost completed the rendering on the Nelwyn path...


the Bay is still full of feed fish...


heading for the gaos...


and the market...


steady as she goes...


the morning's work...


up and away...


ready for Monday's market...


time for ice...


the Mayflower is the latest boat to join the fleet...


a highly specialised fishing vessel...


the Mayflower...


is based on a Buccaneer 46 foot hull...


rigged especially for sardine fishing with sea water tanks to hold the fish in the very best condition...


she has a bulbous bow and bow thruster to make her highly maneuverable ...


when handling the giant ring net which she will take on board tomorrow at high water...


using her net handler...


she can carry well over 20 tonnes of pelagic fish...


in her GRP hull...


sporting the latest in net handling gear like this triplex style winch...


all quiet this morning...


as the lifeboat sits in her marina berth...


the familiar style of Breton art...


in a 1950s home setting.
