A hard-won trip for skipper and crew of the god ship Enterprise.

Looks like the Unity won't be gong anywhere for a day or two...


first time visit for the visiting Brixham based Joy of Ladram skippered by local skipper Nathan Marshall...


she is an older version of the lates beam trawler to join the Newlyn fleet, Enterprise...


there's only a handful of netters and crabbers left in the port after the last eight days of appalling weather...


which skipper Billy Worth described as some of the worst prolonged poor weather he has fished through...


so the boys are doubly happy to set up the landing ear...


don the remote gilson controller which involves some light footwork from the skipper...


watched over by Nathan aboard the Joy of Ladram...


landing eight boxes at a time...


it doesn't take long...


for brothers Ian and 'Little' Graham...


to bring 280 boxes ashore ready for tomorrow's auction.
