Saturday in pictures down the harbour in Nelwyn


Latest prawn trawler from Scotland to visit the port...


the Replenish makes her way in through the gaps...


while cap'n Charlie supervises the gear mending on the Billy Rowney...


recording an intimate view of the community that is Newlyn...


where there is no play for the work-shy...


two of the big Scottish prawn boats get to go stern on...


so that the power block on the Replenish...


can be used to lift off the satellite dish for repair... 


and take fuel and gear aboard...


before the boats lay against the quay again...


and the waiting transport...


despite the trawl doors being made of 12mm steel they get damaged on hard ground...


these guys are a long way from home...


but not so far as some of the crew...


who work aboard these wandering boats...


some blessed with super-hero strength, a 40 gallon drum of oil carefully balanced...


other boats have gear to repair...


or in the Sapphire's case...


new warps to measure out and put aboard...


stylish head gear...


as the Vision III begins to land her catch...


to the lorry...


of Jones Bank langoustine...


sailing time for some of the fleet...


while the crabber Harriet Eve heads in to take bait...


the Kairos is the replacement boat for the skipper's old boat - which is now the new Ajax in newlyn...


Lionel gets chauffeured across the harbour for a change...


 the Karen after landing.
