Scottish mid-water fleet tied up in Penzance wet dock in 1979.


A bevvy of Scottish pursers grace the dock in Penzance during the winter mackerel season of 1978 - L_R  BF200 Flowing Tide, BF58 Convallaria, FR248 Eschol - there's a glimpse of the stern of a mid-water stern trawler on the right. Might well have been a Sunday when many of the Scottish crews stayed ashore.
