Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 12 March 2021

The harbour is full of boats and the storm hasn't even arrived yet.

It's not just the small visiting beam trawlers chasing soles...


but also some of the biggest in the Brixham fleet like the Georgina, William and Julie of Ladram

along with the biggest beam trawler in the south west, the Enterprise...


the Charisma has had a name change to the Charisma of Ladram reflecting her change of ownership in joining the rest of the Ladram fleet...


the Lucy Too makes her way back to a berth...



passing dwarfed by PZ99...


plenty of work still be done on the Twilight III...

the MCA has recently posted an M Notice asking skippers to check hydrostatic releases fittings...


a sure sign the weather is poor, there's a French boat in port...


looking at the forecast the trawls on these three won't be being dragged along the sea bed for a day or two yet ...


the weather means the guys on the Unity can set to mending their twin rig trawls.
