Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Sunday, 25 January 2015

Saturday action aplenty


After last year's storms Newlyn Green was gifted a sandy beach...



for friends of Tom to enjoy...


heading for the ice works...


for a quick turnaround after an eight day trip...


the William Sampson Stevenson... passes the crabbers...


before taking ice...


the crab are landed a bongo at a time...


from the Rowse crabber Intuition to the waiting vivier lorry...


the historic war veteran  Excellent is still waiting for a buyer for the princely sum of £1...


while the even older Cornish Lass...


heads across the harbour...


to the beamer fleet...


while they overhaul their gear...


there is great support in the port for the Fishing for Litter campaign...



back in port to sort a leak topsides...


not quite as bad as the one on the quay...


a sure sign of fine weather, an empty quay...


Fish keeps an eye on the proceedings below...


while a set of chain links comes aboard...


to keep the chain mat fishing well...


it needs constant attention...


this time there's a fender at the ready on the Fili...


as she heads for a quay berth...


just in case...


she settles against the quay...


while Rockets form the WSS makes a shore rope fast...


just a few days to go before the netters head back to sea...


not so for the Twilight just yet...


the crabber Intuition and her baby sister...


slowly the Wayfinder is being broken up and reduced to nothing but bits and pieces in a skip.
