Penlee lifeboat out on a shout


Waiting for the tide to drop...



two beamers on this morning's market...


the William's big shot, unusual to see that many JDs at this time of year...


the stuff of nightmares....


and a distant cousin...


of the salmon...


it's that time of year when many fish are full of roe...


but which fish is this?...


with one eye on the auctioneer...


buying gold on the market...


and more top quality fish...


ready to go...


making tracks for the transport network...


the IRB is first away as the lifeboats get a call...


to go out on a shout - La Mouette or Molly May as she is now known had been taken to Mousehole Island by the skipper to sort a problem with her rudder when she drifted away and left the skipper stranded...



 the IRB picked up the red-faced skipper...



and the Ivan Ellen towed his boat back to Newlyn...



all quiet on the Admiral Gordon this morning.
