St Ives, by day, by night.



St Ives' connection with the classic TV series Morse...



gets launched with a willing crew - unusually, the pilot gig is rigged with a main and mizzen sail...



aboard John Nance's two harbour 'scully' boats, "she went thataway!"...



Nathan takes up a tow on the second boat...




and shows the technique used to power the boat through the water - making it look easier than it is...



another well known face from the Cornish fishing community shows how it's done...



evening draws in...



time for refreshments...



once the St Ives lifeboat is brought ashore she needs a good wash down with fresh water...


before heading for the shed.
