After a wild Friday night, a calm quiet Saturday morning

Early Friday evening and gill-netter Silver Dawn prepares for sea at the start of another neap tide.
Lionel walks the length of the deserted market - no fish this weekend.
Peter retrieves some flotsam from the harbour.
Apart from the harbour guys above, the only life down the quay are crew on their way down the quay to the remaining gill-netters. Meanwhile, over in Penzance wet dock a local beamer lands to a waiting lorry.There's a few baskets of shellfish ready to be picked up by Harvey's.

Dark, dull and dismal February night

Irish beamer Mary Kate gets through some gear maintenance alongside the market.Local netters, the ugliest sterns in the business!
