Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Thursday, 21 July 2016

Under a blazing sun in Newlyn.


Three beam trawlers this morning...


and a handful of inshore boats landing the very best fish...


for the buyers to bid on... 


some just can't resist the temptation...


scallops by the bag...


 cod on the wayto the shop...


ray are always the happiest of fish...


while hake maintain a steely gaze...


name the fish with this tail...


the netter Harvest Reaper landed a good run of big white fish, pollack included...


it's high water and time for PJ to get more pots on board...


seems orange is proving an ever more popular hull colour...


the annual summer insurgence of north Cornwall and Devon inshore trawlers is well underway...


and it's good to see that other green machine back in the port, even tough the boys are in the middle of replacing an entire belly section in the trawl...


yet more stern trawlers...


making moves...


the St Georges lands a four day trip for Thursday's market...


classic lifeboat Angle...


the fitting out work is well underway on the new, as yet, unnamed sardine boat...


just on high water the Twilight III positions herself in the slip cradle...


while slip-meister, Lionel waits with his finger on the button....


before hauling her up the slip...


setting tangle nets for spiders, next season's gear in Andrew's skillful hands...


damaged hake net is cut out and recycled...


yet another yacht heads for the gaps...


full steam ahead...


for the Sapphire II...


as she shows off her freshly painted hull...


and creates a few waves...


as she steams around the Bay...


before heading off to Mousehole...


to entertain those watching from the port.
