Mid-week blues.


Two on Tuesday...


done and dusted by 7am...


as first light approaches the bay...


as the latest haul of sardines landed overnight are loaded on the transport...


waiting for wire warps...


name after the largest freshwater lake in Israel, Galilee on the sea...


bins of nets ready for sea...


some of the port's the netters are now back in port...


 having landed their last trips for the year ahead of the month's final spring tide...


the sorry sight of the Excellent laid almost on her side...


held away from the quay by the starboard side gallows...



the function of which - to provide support for the warp to run out through hanging blocks and to allow the crew to lift the trawl doors well above the sea so that they can be stowed on deck - can be clearly seen in this 1940s film about trawling, mostly shot in Newlyn aboard a sister ship to the Excellent...


PZ192, the Jacqueline...


she was also one of Stevenson's ex-Admiralty MFV wooden sidewinders that were the basis of their fleet after the war...


the boat was cleared of any oil or fuel a long time ago so does not present any kind of pollution threat in the harbour - just a major headache for her owner who was hoping to restore her and use her as a houseboat.
