These connections just keep on coming. Today despite telling the customers that were staying another evening that they would be able to have langoustine it was not to be. Not a lazy day by any means though and was down the pier when the Azalea came in, little bit of the new and old here,
her being replacement boat for the Auk which is going up on the Kishorn yard, so the boys can carry on diving for scallops.
Seems she was a mini ring netter, LH 37,
a description I have not heard before and she is certainly smaller than the ringnetters I knew from Kyle.
Has been at the trawl and clams in recent years and showing her age.
She will probably need a fair bit of work on her to keep her going.
Alongside for lunch and taking on just short of a 1000 litres of fuel before heading out to change over Ewen’s mooring and then to stay around for the Spring diving for scallops.
