Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Thursday, 6 August 2020

Misty morning in Newlyn.


When the conversation drifts towards ribs in the harbour they mean thse not what you get in the Chinese...



landing at the fish market, good to see the Algrie still fishing 

Spirited Lady III looking good outside the Karen of Ladram...

as is the Joy of Ladram not long back from her big refit at Parkols in Whitby...


like the rest of the netters the Amanda of Ladram is waiting for a drop in the big spring tide before setting out on her next hake trip...

further down the quay is the Belgian beam trawler Storm Vogel...
with a lorry alongside...

making another landing,...
and it's smiles all round from the crew...

and skipper...


at the end of the quay the Kilkeel trawler Unity...
pulling off her heavy combination bridles...
from the twin-rig trawl...
she has been working well south of Scilly...
on the cleaner ground...

Plugger has been scraping off all the paint back to the bare wood on the Shiralee...

more mist than twilight...


netters Ocean Pride and Ygraine between trips...

Still Waters heads for the iceworks...
the buoys are ready...

visibility is down this morning...


with the gaps barely visible astern of the Emma Louise on the slip...
all fifty feet of the promenade has been oped to the public, at this rate if they had built the M1 at this speed they still wouldn't have finished it today...and the prom has anew name it seems.
