photoblog image Boat Friday

Boat Friday

One of the fishing boats in Charleston harbour, Oregon. My ressearch told me that if there is any chance of mist or fog then to head for Charleston for some atmospheric shots. The fog was just lifting as I got there and the harbour behind was coming into the sun; this is looking out to sea. 

 

I can't find any information about the vessel or even any other images of it; all very odd.

They are quite large fishing boats, Alan.
Alan: Not as big as the things from the EU that hoover up all the fish from the waters around the UK. I never did find out what they were fishing for.

Magnifique bateau, je l'imagine toutes voiles dehors.
Alan: There are quite different to the UK trawlers as these have huge booms that they lower and presumably have nets strung from them.
This works well - I like the straight on (almost) view!
Alan: Thanks, Elizabeth. Ah.. perhaps I should have gone head on; I could say that I was right on the end of the pontoon and another step to the right I would be in the water smile
i really like this view in these conditions, Alan.
Alan: Its gives a very eerie feel. Thanks, Ayush.

Strange shaped craft, all of 'em..
Alan: There are quite different to the UK trawlers as these have huge booms that they lower and presumably have nets strung from them. I assume that the very lights attract the fish towards the boat and the nets just scoop them up.

Oh, this is a wonderful image with the Texas Lady in the centre! You could have entered one of these fishing boats if you had a rod with you. "Charleston Marina is the place to go ,if you love fishing or walking around the pleasure boats and Commercial Fishing Boats. Bring your fishing rods and Crab Nets. Salmon , Halibut and Crab are seasonal fish, check with the local fishing Boats, to see whats being caught. If you like to sit back or walk, you can walk down the ramp to the Marina and see the commercial fishing Boats getting ready to leave the Harbor, or see the private Boats , with their owners getting ready to leave Charleston Harbor to fish, and some just relaxing on their Boats, and enjoying the Weather. There are a few restaurants, check their menus first, some serve excellent seafood and others sell frozen Fish, don't forget to check out the Gift shops and the newly opened State Marine Center and Aquarium. Bring the children and have fun for the day."
Alan: Thanks you, Philine. I spent much time watching people with their crab nets; often within a few minutes, they would catch crabs and then carefully measure each one to make sure that they were over a certain size. Smaller ones were then just flung back in the water from the piers (I would have lowered then back in gently). I also watched the hauls of fish coming back and then marvelling how quickly they were cleaned and filleted but the dockside crews. I didn't see the Aquarium but did fine a very pleasant coffee ship staffed by very friendly people. Thanks, Philine.
Are they fishing with lines rather than nets?
Alan: Ah! yes.. of course, a very good point. Thanks.
Very impressive boat, Alan, nice capture.
Alan: Very different to our few remaining fishing vessels. Thanks, Frank.
The Texas Lady is moody today in the fog. I like it.
Alan: Thanks, Jacquelyn. smile
great Boat Friday Alan... i love shots of all fishing boats... big or small....petersmile
Alan: Thanks, Peter. The harbours there are fascinating to see all the fishing boats.
You caught the light at just the right time...
Alan: Thanks, Larry. I do like misty days.
Most unusual looking fishing boats compared with ours.
