Cornishman come home.




After a 24 hour lon steam the Cornishman heads in through the gaps after a major refit in Den Oever in the Nederlands...


to be met by fleet manager...


Pete Buckland who quickly gets to grips with a heaving line...


along with the welcoming committee...


while some familiar faces make good the stern ropes...



under the watchful eye of skipper George Stevens...

young Shane draws on his last roll-up of the trip...

the Cornishman now sports her new Ocean Fish colours...


along with the company logo on her bow...


while the boat's name board below the wheelhouse windows looks like it has had some serious coats of varnish applied...


all-in-all a significant change from the longstanding olive green colour associated with the Stevenson fishing fleet of steel beam trawlers... 


she joins the Enterprise in similar livery.
