High and low water in Newlyn.

Between gales the fleet take time to make repairs to their trawls - that happens at the end of every trip...

on a beam trawler that means checking all the links and shackles that go to make up the chain mat...

the biggest vessels in the fleet can only go up on the slip during spring tides because they draw so much water aft...

though whether the new Crystal Sea will be able to take advantage of the local slip is highly unlikely as she is already drying out even when in berth...

as with the netter Karen of Ladram, evidence if needed that there may be a need for a major harbour dredging programme if the port is going to continue playing host to modern vessels that increasingly are built with more compact hull that draw much more water than the narrow hulls of years gone by...

the latest addition to the Rowse fleet comes astern to join her sister-ships.
