Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Saturday, 28 May 2016

Sunny Saturday in Newlyn.


Picked out in a hazy morning sun, the prawn trawler Vision II makes fast on the end of the quay after a week fishing west of the Scillys...


while another prawner, FMoray Endeavour takes ice...


these days the crews of many Scottish boats are from the Philippines...


time to replace those dollies on the St Georges...


yet another visiting wave farm cat, Seacat Volunteer...


it's easy greasing the hanging blocks at the end of the derrick quayside...


whereas the other derrick requires more effort and agility..


the bulbous bow, it's what makes the boat more efficient in the water...


all set for a day at sea...


all set to land those prawns...


and take on some new gear...


the Billy Rowney's new miniature crewman


going through the gear.
