Another first

Definitely high water on a big spring - even the quay rings are lifted!
These three haven't moved much of late.
A first, two for the price of one! The St George and the James R H Stevenson are fill the dry dock in Penzance.
Meanwhile another WS boat, the Resurgan is up on the slip.
The wheelhouse is now all but gone on the Bryan D, the funnel graces the deck.
Possibly another first, Newlyn Co-op to proudly sports their new corporate livery.

Turned out nice this evening!

The funnel of the Bryan D provides an odd silhouette.
Biggest - smallest: the punt PZ527 Bass Boy steams up the harbour with the evening's handline caught mackerel on board; in the background, the port's largest beamer the Daisy Christianne has just arrived.
Refrigeration specialists Kingfisher wait on the end of the quay alongside the Daisy.W Stevenson boxes piled on the quay ready to go back aboard the James RH

Welsh refrigerated transport takes five with a daily paper in the cab.Over in Penzance, the Scillonian eases her way past the end of the quay after her trip back from Scilly.

Now, the Bryan D Stevenson under the breakers.

For the first time ever! - the Penlee lifebaot goes up on the slip at Newlyn to have her 6-monthly hull inspection.
Elizabeth N leaves for another trip.
Bryan D Stevenson, now you see her derricks and masts............ now you don't.With the breaking of these vessels comes the opportunity to pick up many items of boat equipment, fittings and deck machinery - more details coming soon.
St Ives registered Wayfinder gets her annual coat of paint.
A year and a day ago the Valhalla had both sets of gear on the quay for mending - guess what? The guys are not looking forward to a repeat next year!
