More visitors to Newlyn and Cap'n Cod has plenty of weed.




Visiting scalloper Accord N262 heads for a berth...

before she was helped to right with the aid of a pump from Penlee lifeboat...




under the command of Penlee lifeboat cox, Patch Harvey - whom you can hear describing the role they played on Radio Cornwall's Martin Bailie show later in the day...



it didn't take long to get a coat of anti-fouling paint on the hull of the Admiral Gordon on the slip...



Copious FH145, another visiting scalloper but very much smaller than the big Irish boys...

Cap'n Cod giving the bottom of the good ship Butts a good scrub to get rid of all the weed - reminds me of the Lucy Marianna days ;-)... don't get rusty joints!
