Visiting Cruise Ships
On first sight, a new block of flats in Fowey???
Nope! Just "The World" on a visit.
"The World" - a live-aboard cruise ship
(I really missed my opportunity here... I should have gone
out in my boat that day...
...I could have claimed that I had sailed around the World!)
Some cruise ships have to anchor outside the harbour, as did here the "Silver Whisper".
(She has been inside the harbour before, but weather, time and tide do dictate where some ships anchor or moor)
A Cruise-ships-eye-view of Fowey Harbour from the "Silver Whisper"
(we were lucky enough to go aboard that day!)
A number of cruise ships call at Fowey, including the "Deutschland"
There have been Oddities!
A Shed was spotted happily motoring down Penpoll Creek!
...and another day, a Shed was spotted moored against the slipway in Fowey
"The Shed"! Revealed on its trailer in a boatyard somewhere near Fowey
'Tis the "Maid of Dekkin"! (say it again slowly...)
Other Interesting Vessels
The Tall Ship "Stavros S Niachos" moored next to the British Antarctic Survey vessel "RRS Ernest Shackleton"
An old schooner , the "Alice", seen around Fowey Harbour - very reminiscent of Frenchman's Creek!
An ex-Army Landing Craft - unfortunately no other details!
The Survey Vessel "Smit
Yare" registered in Aberdeen
Sadly some more tragic vessels appear, this being the salvaged wreck of the JMT M99,
a scallop trawler lost off Rame Head near the Eddystone Lighthouse with the loss of one of its crew members.
