Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 21 September 2016

Mid-week market and there's another new boat in town!




With just four day boats landing to the market this morning...


the auction floor was cleared well before 7am...


outside dark, heavy skies...


kept the market lights glowing...


the old post office will soon be home to the CFPO and the Newlyn Archive, hence the change of colour scheme on the entrance...


more work on the mission as the conversion nears completion...


a bird in the bush is worth two on the bow...


Don at the gear...



all set for some serious shipwrighting high up on the bow...


one of the port's girls heads out to sea...


while another waits to take bait on board, these crabbers get through over a ton of bait a day - they make good use of fish like gurnards and lesser spotted dogfish in the process...


one man and his catch, Barry made an early start this morning well before first light...


looks like the MMO is moving to Hayle, do they know something we don't?...


four a side, scalloping inshore style...


the Three Jays is in her new home of Newlyn...


she represents a step up for skipper James...


with a much bigger working deck, specifically rigged to shoot pots away easily...


and what else when you buy a boat from Newquay, it comes complete with its very own surfboard, hang-ten James...


one of the last of the summer season yachts leaves the port...


on an almost flat calm morning...



its been a while since there were no boats in these berths - winter must be on its way.
