Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 20 February 2015

100 mile tow for beam trawler with fouled propeller.


High water on a big Spring tide in Newlyn...


means all the netters are back in port...


and riding high against the quay...


on their mooring ropes...


it's been a busy end of the week on the market...


with mostly beam trawl fish like...


nosey megrim soles...


by the hundreds of boxes...


and a good shot of ray or 'roker' as the Milford boys call them from the Sapphire II...


plus  a few dozen scallops...


and a shot of hake form the Britannia V...


some of the beamers just love those cuttles...


and so do some of the merchants...


with an insatiable market for the sepia beasts...

they get whisked away to be sorted and packed in ice...


there's a few of those JDs about though this time the WSS' trip was cut short...


with the problem all too obvious for anyone on the quay...


as the boat is seen here being towed into Newlyn after a 100 mile tow behind the Twilight now making her way to a drying out berth so the net can be cut free form the propeller.
