"SOUTHERN BELLE" SLEEP VIR "ADENIA" HUIS TOE

Afgeneem hieronder tydens sonsondergang op 21 April 2018 bring die "Southern Belle" vir "Adenia" sy-aan-sy na Houtbaai hawe na 'n sleeptog wat etlike ure geneem het, nadat die "Adenia" probleme ondervind het met die "variable pitch" tydens 'n visvang trip buitekant Gansbaai. Hierdie video illustreer net weereens die spesiale vaardighede waaroor ons trawlkampioen skippers beskik.

       GEBED VIR PELAGIESE VIS EN REEN

Heer, hiermee vra ons U genade om die pelagiese vissermanne en die vissersvloot van die Weskus en Ooskus te seŽn met 'n oorvloed pelagiese vis gedurende die 2018 seisoen. Ons vra groot asseblief dat U ook die nodige reŽn sal stuur om ons damme weer vol te maak. Sonder water kan ons nie ingemaakte blikkies vis produseer nie, sonder water kan ons nie vars vis verpak nie, en sonder water kan ons ook nie ys vervaardig nie. Amen.

   

                         TRAWLKAMPIOENE!

Afgeneem hieronder op Saterdag 19 Mei 2018 op Houtbaai is die "Oceana Concorde" se visruime gevul met Ansjovis wat by Gansbaai gevang was, terwyl die "Ukuloba" met 80 ton Ansjovis in haar visruime wag vir 'n beurt om afgelaai te word.

 "UMFONDINI" MAAK SOOS "BLOUGANS"

Afgeneem hieronder op Donderdag 17 Mei 2018 hel die "Umfondini" oor na stuurboord nadat die skuit kennis gemaak het met 'n vlak klipbank in die Gansbaai ou hawe wat oor die jare heen al telkens amok gemaak het onder skippers. Benewens verskeie buiteboord propellers wat al daar verloor is deur ski-bote, het selfs groter skuite, waaronder die "Blougans", oor die jare heen al kennis gemaak met daardie klipbank.

                       

  "UMFONDINI" OORLEEF NOG 'N DAG...

Afgeneem hieronder laat op Donderdagmiddag 17 Mei 2018 staan die "Umfondini" veilig op die Gansbaai skeepshelling om die romp te inspekteer vir moontlike skade, nadat die skuit tydens hoogwater suksesvol op die skeepshelling gelig is. En so oorleef "Umfondini" nog 'n dag in 'n hawe wat in die verlede al soveel skuite se lewens geeis het.

            

   CAPE WINTER STORM WREAK HAVOC
             AMONGST FISHING FLEET


The first big winter storm caused chaos amongst the Proudest Fishing Fleet, with numerous vessels running into trouble in one way or another. On Sunday evening 29 April 2018 the commercial linefish ski-boat, the "Normandie" had capsized after excepting an tow back to Sandy Point harbour from a fellow Snoek trawler, causing the fully laden ski-boat to capsized with the loss of one crewmember.

Pictured below on Monday 30 April 2018 are the stormy sea conditions experienced at Gansbaai. Despite the rough seas, numerous purse seiners as far as Laaiplek were present in the bay, catching Anchovy. It did not took long before two Hout Bay purse seiners namely, "Oceana Orion" and "Oceana Concorde" run into trouble shortly after shooting their nets. Both vessels ended up with a fouled prop and rudder as the strong currents made life difficult for the crews. Both vessels had to be towed back to Hout Bay harbour, where the assistance of a diving squad had to be called in to deal with the problem. 


          

Pictured below on Tuesday 1 May 2018 the "Alert III" is towing the "Oceana Orion" back to Hout Bay harbour.

             

Pictured below on Tuesday 1 May 2018 off York Point is the "Star Crest" towing the "Oceana Concorde" back to Hout Bay harbour.

             

Pictured below from the Trawler Heritage archives is the commercial linefish ski-boat the "Normandie", who had capsized on Sunday evening 29 April 2018 with the loss of one crewmember.

             

         LIGTE, AKSIE, GEE PAD VOOR,
                HIER KOM "MIZPAH"!


Afgeneem hieronder op 1 Mei 2018 is die "Mizpah" onderweg na Houtbaai hawe, volgelaai met 'n vrag Ansjovis wat by Bokpunt gevang was.

           

Afgeneem hieronder op 1 Mei 2018 vertoon die "Mizpah" haar piepklein nuwerwetse stuurboord navigasielig...mooi kyk, mens kan dit maklik miskyk!

           

Al is hierdie liggie so klein, het hulle wragtag nog die moeite gedoen om dit verder te modifiseer met 'n stukkie kleefband...moenie stres nie manne, 101.9% persent van die land se populasie sal in elkgeval nooit kan verstaan hoekom ons dit doen nie.

           

Afgeneem hieronder op 1 Mei 2018 vertoon die "Mizpah" 'n nuwe LED spreilig wat op die voorste maspaal gemonteer is, soos aangetoon in die rooi sirkel.

                      
 Christiaan, jy kan maar laat weet as daar nog iets is wat ek misgekyk het...

"OCEAN BLUE"- HOUTBAAI EN KAAP AGULHAS


Afgeneem hieronder is 'n seleksie van videos van die pelagiese skuit "Ocean Blue" wat geneem is tydens Maart en April 2018 op Houtbaai asook buitekant Kaap Agulhas tydens 'n Sardyn trip.

 

        
ETIKETTE VAN DIE TROTSTE         
          VISSERSVLOOT TER WÍRELD!

Reg mense, dis weer tyd om na nuwe etikette te kyk wat onlangs op die rakke verskyn het wat te make het met ons trotse visbedryf. Die eerste etiket wat ons onder oŽ gaan neem is 'n bottel Raka Shiraz wat dateer uit die 2013 oesjaar. Nee nee, Trawler Heritage het nie oormatig tyd deurgebring in die Ou Bar by die Laaiplek Hotel nie. Hierdie bottel het toevallig die oog gevang op die rakke by 'n bekende kettingwinkelgroep. Die Gansbaaiers sal nog 'n tjokkaskuit onthou genaamd die "Raka" wat gedurende die laat 1980's en vroeŽ 1990's vanuit die hawe gewerk het. Sou mens die etiket agterop die bottel lees, word daar beaam dat Raka wyne na die einste skuit vernoem is! Hierdie wyn word geproduseer op die plaas Raka wat geleŽ is op die Kleinrivierpad tussen Stanford en Caledon. Trawler Heritage weet sommer (sonder om in die bottel te kyk) dat daar nÍrens anders op planeet Aarde nog 'n wynreeks is wat na 'n tjokkaskuit vernoem is nie. Net hier aan die suidpunt van Afrika is so iets moontlik. En vir diegene wat wonder of Trawler Heritage nou die bottel se prop gaan trek, aikona, hierdie bottel Raka Shiraz gaan voortaan saam met 'n foto van die regte "Raka" pryk in die S.A. Visserye Museum op Laaiplek.

                 
Vir diegende wat nie weet nie, die Laaiplek Hotel en die S.A. Visserye  Museum is reg langs mekaar geleŽ, hier begin die moeilikheid alweer...


Die tweede etiket wat ons onder oŽ gaan neem is die van Glenryck Sardyne wat pryk met 'n splinternuwe ontwerp. Glenryck Sardyne word deesdae in Walvisbaai geblik en nie meer op Laaiplek nie. Daar is egter een aspek op die nuwe etiket ontwerp wat Trawler Heritage so bietjie laat kopkrap..."Since 1937"...Waar kom dit nou vandaan? Gaan ons terug in tyd rakende die geskiedenis van Glenryck Sardyne, is daar twee datums wat die aandag trek naamlik 1941, die stigting van Marine Products asook 1944, die jaar waarin Glenryck Sardyne die eerste keer verskyn het...so, hoe het hulle sommetjies gemaak om by 1937 uit te kom? Indien enige persoon weet waar die jaargetal 1937 vandaan kom, laat weet asseblief vir Trawler Heritage per epos, trawlerheritage@gmail.com 

                 


             
Hierdie Glenryck etiket is alreeds gelamineer en sal voortaan saam met al die vorige Glenryck etikette pryk op die mure van die S.A. Visserye Museum op Laaiplek.

              
"VIVA" BREEK TOE!

Afgeneem hieronder op Maandag 30 April 2018 breek die "Viva" toe in 'n windsee tydens 'n vaart suid-waarts om Ansjovis te gaan vang by Gansbaai.

           'n SIEK CAT BY DIE VEEARTS

Afgeneem hieronder op Maandag 23 April 2018 by Ritco Marine is hoe die CAT 3408 daarna uitsien wat op Saterdag 21 April 2018 vanaf die "Africa Unity" gehaal is, nadat die enjin vir bykans 14 dae onder die water gelÍ het tydens die bergingsoperasie van die skuit. Dinge lyk nie te lekker nie, hierdie CAT het waarskynlik nou meer as net 1 van sy 9 lewens opgebruik...die fotos hieronder spreek vanself.

            NOVANAM ORDERS 3 NEW
                     STERN TRAWLERS

Pictured below is an artist impression of three new 164 foot hake stern trawlers ordered by Novanam to join their fleet operations in Namibia. The total cost of the project amounts in the region of N$450 million. The first of the three vessels are already under construction at a boat yard at Vigo in Spain, to be ready for delivery during 2019, while the other two vessels will join the fleet during 2020.
