Always plenty of colour down the quay


The oldest trawlerman in Nelwyn still has a full head of hair...


just like this character created on the quayside...


therre's a whole lot of chain links to check and both trawls on the big beam trawler Sapphire II...


back in action with her new propeller, the Troon registered scalloper Philomeena...


has work to do like greasing all the running gear... 


it's great to see still more new investment in the industry, this time in the form of a new punt...

 



 PZ62, the Sea Fox...


with the usual arrangement on deck - a waterproof housing for the electronics like radio and fish finders...


up for'ard the engine box and gear store offset to port...



maybe its time for another @thefishmish yellow-welly campaign!.. 


with only a few trawlers working from the port a rare big piece of sea coal...


heading for the islands in fine(ish) weather...

 


shellfishing and recycling - these whelk pots...


and these are made from recycled plastic containers... 


still plenty of chain links to check!
