Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 8 April 2016

April #FishyFriday showers


 Myghal made ready to dry out on the hard so that she can have her hull cleaned of weed which can take 2-3 knots off the speed of a boat owing to the increased drag in the water...


a couple of beam trawlers and a handful of day boat inshore fish on the market this morning as big tides prevent many boats from working safely...


just the one bass for the Lisa...


along with a good selection of lemons and monk...


big Spring tides mean no fishing for the netters...


so the buyers are busy at the other end of the market with fish from the Sapphire II...


and her monk tails...


there's something missing from the harbour skyline this morning...


the Galilee rides high at high water...


as do the Nowell girls...


and Girl Kim of course...


well and truly out of the water is the beam trawler St Georges now up on the slip - she can only go on the slip over the bigger Spring tides...


looking east...


one of the netters waiting for the tides to drop...


sporting her new company colours...


the Innisfallen inshore trawler...


the three Ns...


all set for a bass-free angling season...


the dawn peepeth through...


better safe than sorry...


the work of master craftsmen...


keeping things quiet...


just a few more planks to go...



all that is left of the iconic harbour crane...


great skies for any watercolourists this morning...



enjoy a panoramic view of the pontoon berths this morning - might take a while to load!
