Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Sunday, 9 July 2017

Weekend action in Newlyn.






Summertime means that the Border Agency boats are on the hunt for smugglers...



coming on, work in progress on the new tugboat for Stevensons, wonder what they will call her?..



the Mousehole boys are off to sea...



the wing end of the new trawl...



the first section of the belly with the bobbin...



bottom trawls have a row of 'guard meshes' immediately adjacent to the fishing line - made from heavier twine - as the first dozen meshes suffer the most abrasion as the footrope is dragged across the bottom...



Govenek of Ladram looking good as she sails...



you know it's summer when the harbour has visiting scallopers...



like the Albion from the land of the cats without tails...



nonchalant sanding down of the hull...



the new timber and tyre fenders are now in place on much of the North pier...



32 dredges in all on the UK's biggest scalloper...



the boat and the bait...



Penlee lifeboat heads out on exercise...



all the scalloping spares you need...



on the deck of the Dumfries registered, Macduff Shellfish scalloper...



tooth bar comes in useful, an old mooring trick on how to pass a spring through and eye without fastening it...



local inshore scallopers, not quite in the same league as the Albion...



all set for a day on the crabs!
