A different boat altogether - the new Ajax in Penzance dock


These two would make a great pair team...



the Nellie has her starboard side beam trawl raised above the deck...



so the trawl can be mended...



while the ring netter Mayflower has her net back on the quay again...



ten days was enough for Arny this year, time to see the good ship Louisa N off again...



single-handed handliner using a stripper when mackerel fishing...


another Christo masterpiece in Penzance dock...



the old and the new, the new Ajax PZ36 lays outside the old Ajax...



seen from port side in Penzance wet dock...



there's a considerable difference between the two boats...



as can be seen when viewed from astern...



yet there is only a few feet difference in overall length...



dredging at rest.
