In and around Newlyn this morning.




The south west's newest crabber, Nichola of Ladram heads back into Newlyn...



under tow by the Danmark...





with gearbox troubles...

the red AIS tracks plots where she has been hauling and shooting her new fleet of pots - hopefully the fleet of local and French trawlers will steer clear of them while she is in port...



with the tides falling the netter Joy of Ladram heads away from the gaps...


leaving the Admiral Gordon up on the slip for under the waterline work...


the new boat is based on a broad-beam trawler hull...


the crew on the Sapphire II get her beam trawls ready for the next trip...



under outboard power...


Peggy, built in 1902, the unmistakable lines of a Bristol Channel pilot cutter, reputed to be the finest compromise of any vessel in a sailing hull between speed, carrying capacity, seagoing and sail-ability...


she (if I'm allowed to refer to her as she without causing too much angst) underwent a big refit around 20 years ago when her hull and decks were re-planked...


today she has been put up ahead...



and made ready...


to have her bottom scrubbed before heading off to the Scillys.
