       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.

   

                          SONSOPKOMS

Afgeneem hieronder op Vrydag 20 April 2018 is die sonsopkoms soos gesien vanuit Peperbaai.

          "UKULOBA" WYS HAAR STAAL 
   (GLASVESEL) MET 209 TON CHOVY!

Afgeneem onlangs is die nuutste toevoeging tot die Suid-Afrikaanse pelagiese vloot, die "Ukuloba", 'n Sachal glasveselskuit onderweg vanaf Gansbaai na Laaiplek met 209 ton Ansjovis aanboord.

     PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN?

Wat op die oog af meer lyk soos 'n toneel uit "Pirates of the Caribbean" is hoe die "Atlantic Pride II" op Saterdag 7 April 2018 daarna uitgesien het nadat Guerrini Marine suksesvol daarin geslaag het om die wrak tot op die Saldanhabaai skeepshelling te kon lig. Trawler Heritage kan aan baie byvoeglike naamwoorde dink om die toestand van die skuit se romp te kon beskryf, maar kom ons sÍ maar net, sy was vrot!

             TURKISH DELIGHT

Eienaardig dat mens vir soveel jare al saam met 'n skuit kom, en in jou hart weet mens van iets besonders rakende die oorsprong van die skuit, maar tot hede nog geen konkrete bewys daarvan gesien op die skuit self nie...en dan, baie laat op 'n herfs agtermiddag drentel Trawler Heritage weer rondom die "Emerald Isle" terwyl sy staan op die Syncrolift, en skielik val die kwynende sonstrale op die agterstewe teen 'n spesifieke hoek...en daar staan dit wragtag geskrywe, "Istanbul" - die geboortestad van die "Emerald Isle"! En dan vra ek myself af, hoekom het ek dit nog nooit voorheen opgelet nie?

           


    
"ATLANTIC PRIDE II" WORD GEBERG

Afgeneem hieronder op Saldanhabaai gedurende einde Maart, het Guerrini Marine net-net daarin geslaag om die boeg van die gesinkte "Atlantic Pride II" weer vlot te maak, nadat die skuit 6 jaar gelede langs die kaai gesink het.

"BRANDARIS" SE LAASTE SEEMYL...

Afgeneem hieronder op 19 Maart 2018 op Saldanhabaai lÍ die "Brandaris" haar laaste seemyl af, nee eintlik 'n kwart-myl, soos die skuit weggesleep word na die Saldanhabaai skeepshelling om gesloop te word, nadat die skuit suksesvol geberg is deur Guerrini Marine.


                        
Trawler Heritage sal binnekort fotos vertoon van die sloping van die "Brandaris", maar wees vooraf gewaarsku dis nie bedoel vir sensitiewe trawlskuit-liefhebbers nie. Gruwelike tonele het voor ons afgespeel om te sien hoe 'n legendariese skuit binne minute gereduseer word tot net 'n hopie hout.
