Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Thursday, 15 June 2017

Newlyn, work in progress...


The wooden and tyre fenders that line the quays are being replaced after many years sterling service - timber baulks from a tree called ironwood for these the old fenders ...



a bit like the current Government, the wheels appear to have come off the new freshwater hose trolley...


the replica sailing langoustier (crayfish) boat, Skellig leaves her berth - she took ten years to build as the funds needed rolled in...


as the inshore trawler Shiralee heads back to her berth...


the Skellig turns again...


now working from Newlyn again, the Chris Tacha heads back in through the gaps...


while some classic wooden boats both enter and leave...


fabulous lines of the Skellig...


there are plenty of stays keeping the mast aloft...
