Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 5 May 2021

Keeping an eye on things in Newlyn.


Chair of the Newlyn Fishermen's Forum and NPHC Advisory Board member Tom McClure has his inshore trawler Harvest Reaper up on the slip for the annual under the waterline paint job and anode replacement...


as the Ocean pride heads in through the gaps to land her trip of MSC hake...


the re-named Amanda of Ladram is now the Rachel of Ladram...


looking every inch a new boat the Phoenix has been re-planked...


re-decked, new pounds fitted aft and a new mizzen gantry built along with...


 and her rails now capped in aluminium and stainless around the hauler area ...


crew on the Ocea Pride place the boxes of hake on to pallets...


which are in turn given a cursory glance by a land-based MMO team...



Joy and Rachel of Ladram...


crew on the Sapphire II are busy putting re-rigging her a starboard beam trawl...


good to see the Enterprise back in port after returning to Holland to make good her main winch...


the historic Sevenstones lightship has been towed into the Mounts Bay by the Trinity service ship Patricia for a refit...




if only she could talk some stories would be told...


to make them pay, inshore beam trawlers work 3m beam trawls targeting small areas of ground that would not be navigable for larger vessels...



 while the slightly larger Spirited Lady II makes three day trip much further off and successfully competes with the 'big boys'.
