Saturday squalls


The money-bag - one cod, end all ready to be stitched back on to the stocking of the trawl...



BF432 Orion, another member of the visiting Scottish prawn trawler fleet in Newlyn between trips...



while over on the New quay, the @Nereus172 gives her twin trawl cod-ends a washing in the harbour...



which inevitably causes any number of disputes amongst the local gull population...



pallets of packaging wait on the quay while the boat unloads its trip...



of frozen at sea langoustine...



which are weighed, graded and frozen while the boat fishes 24/7...



and then on landing go straight to refrigerated transport...



with each box's destination marked...



the real McKay set to cart them away...



Fladda Maid (ex-Crystal Sea II) and her twin-rig prawn trawl...



two more visiting trawlers from further round the Cornish coast...



on survey, off duty...



the genuine article, lined up for landing...



bow shot of the Orion on the North quay...



probably better you can't see so well astern of you sometimes...



all set for a day on the pots...



good to see another young fisherman taken to sea...



on the Mousehole boat...



over in Penzance wet dock the Scilly supply boat, Gry Maritha's replacement is being brought up to standard...



moves to make the lives of queuing customers more comfortable in case of showers for the IoS Steamship Company...



just a few feet longer than the ex-icebreaker yacht conversion...



the Mali Rose arrived a few days ago...



her slab sides...


and welded plating construction...



and rather blunt nose allude to purpose rather than the aesthetics of many ships at sea...



the Karen, nearing the end of her annual refit...



a Falmouth registered classic...



Cadgwith crabber, the Minerva...



nothing, not what you want to see in the Dry Dock...



the old Trinity House buoy service building.
