Modern Scottish sea power


After steaming two Newlyn from way out west of the Scillys, berthed on the North pier, are the two examples of the modern Scottish trawler fleet, Banff registered Acheive BF223...


and the Inverness registered, Apollo INS179...

 


sporting her trawl doors hauled to the top of the gantry aft...


while the Achieve has her doors hauled on her quarter...


with ingenious fenders rigged to prevent the doors crashing violently as she rolls in heavy weather...


despite the weather, some of the crew take the time to scrub down topsides...


a measure of how big these boats are, the Achieve draws more at her bow than any boat in the Newlyn fleet does aft...


meanwhile over on the Mary Williams pier the Stelissa's trammel net anchors are ready to go aboard...


landing the Emma Louise...


at high water on a big tide...


with the new sistership to the Emma,  the Harriet Eve now back in Newlyn.
