The Lilly Oak on the slip…

The fishing vessel Lilly Oak sits on her cradle on the slip at MacDuff Harbour, Scotland. The slip is a long sloping concrete ramp (image coming soon) used to haul boats out of the water for repair and repainting. The cradle that supports the ships runs on railway lines on the slip.

    The Lilly Oak is one of the deep draft trawlers they use up here in Scotland. The fill the hold with ice before leaving and then, as they catch fish, the pack it in ice before landing it back at MacDuff Harbour. The fishermen are impressive, especially considering how rough the sea can become around Scotland. These tiny trawlers bob around like corks on the North Sea. Rather them than me!!
