            DIE LAASTE SIEN
VAN "DRAKENSKOP"
    
Afgeneem hieronder op 19 September 2020 langs die Saldanhabaai skeepshelling is die laaste oorblyselfs van die
"Drakenskop" wat onlangs gesloop was. Kom ons bekyk die konstruksie van hierdie gewese skuit van naderby.

Pictured below is the remains of the bow, together with it's apron and fore feet, all constructed from Jarrah. Actual measurements reveal the bow was constructed from 16 x 12 inch solid Jarrah wood.


        

Pictured below is the remains of the keel, keelson and clamp, which was all constructed from Jarrah wood. The overall quality of this piece of Jarrah wood still looks like it was freshly cut just yesterday, despite the fact that the "Drakenskop" was built 52 years ago. Counting the year rings (visible) revealed 32, however this only covered about a quarter of the total log, meaning that the tree from which the keel was constructed from, was more than 150 years old!

        

Pictured below is a copper nut used to fastening a 1" copper rod in the keel assembly.

        

Pictured below is 20mm copper rod used to hold together the
keel-and-clamp assembly.

Afgeneem hieronder op 12 September 2020 op Laaiplek is die erg geroeste stern-thruster op die "Terrasan 1" se agterstewe wat uit die staanspoor nie die toets van tyd gaan weerstaan nie. BygesÍ, is dit niemand se skuld nie, aangesien geen data vooraf beskikbaar was aangaande die nuwe tegnologie wat op die "Terrasan 1" se romp gebruik was nie. Met verloop van tyd is hierdie tegniese fout egter oorkom namate meer en meer glasveselrompe gebou was.

Afgeneem hieronder op 12 September 2020 in Sandy Point hawe is die baggerboot se pype nogsteeds teenwoordig in die hawegebied.

        
En so het lede van die sogenaamde 101.9% wat niks weet wat aangaan op die see nie, onlangs op Facebook verkondig dat hierdie pyp deel is van 'n oesterplaas...ook geen wonder dat Trawler Heritage en Facebook nog nooit in dieselfde see kon trawl nie - van wanneer af is die areakode "PQ" verbonde aan Paternoster? SÍ maar eerder niks verder nie.

         SANDY POINT VLEKHUIS WORD DAKLOOS

Afgeneem hieronder op 12 September 2020 in Sandy Point hawe word daar ook aandag geskenk aan kragvoorsiening op die verskeie kaaie.

        

        
Gedurende 2019 het Trawler Heritage 'n omvattende verslag ingedien op versoek van die Wes-Kaap Regering aangaande die stand van infrastruktuur in al die geproklameerde vissershawens langs die Weskus, soos gesien vanuit die oogpunt van 'n visserman. Trawler Heritage het deeglik seker gemaak van die feite en inhoud van daardie verslag, en het in die proses diegene en departemente wat verantwoordelik is vir die instandinghouding van ons hawens behoorlik deur die "stickwater" gesleep. Uit skaamte, sal die inhoud van daardie verslag sal waarskynlik nooit gepubliseer word nie, maar 'n mens is net dankbaar dat daar wel aandag geskenk word aan al ons frustrasies.

Ook maar goed oom Coenie Loubscher van Houtbaai is nie die skuit se skipper nie, so nie sou die crewmanne elk met 'n draadborsel in die hand, die skulpies van die skuit se gat moes afskrop, siende dat die skuit so hoog dryf..Oom Coenie was immers 'n skuiteienaar wat geglo het aan deurlopende instandhoudings-werk.

Pictured below on 31 August 2020 anxious moments followed after the hull of the "Abraham T" started to "slip" from the Sandy
Point side-slip as the vessel was prepared to be lowered back into the water as indicated by red circles below.

                

Over the years the "T" in "Abraham T" already denoted several meanings such as "Trouble", "Timber", "Technology", "Turbo", but after witnessing her latest feat, one can add "Terminator" to that list as well!

                

Pictured below on 31 August 2020 is a section of the side-slip which toppled over during the release phase whilst the "Abraham T" was in the water.

"MIZPAH" LAND 'n 17DE EEUSE ANKER

Afgeneem hieronder op gedurende die nag van 27 Augustus 2020 lÍ 'n antieke skeepsanker op die werksdek van die "Mizpah" tussen die vis, kapdrade en vispompe wat saam in die net opgekom het terwyl die skuit werksaam was in die kanaal tussen Robbeneiland en Melkbosstrand.

             

Afgeneem hieronder op 27 Augustus 2020 by aankoms in Sandy Point hawe word die skeepsanker deur middel van 'n mobiele hyskraan vanaf die "Mizpah" gelig tot op die Regeringskaai. Weens die afwesigheid van 'n ketting, is daar 'n sterk vermoede dat hierdie anker gedien het as 'n eertydse skip se "spaar-anker". Die herkoms van die anker is op die oomblik egter nog onbekend.

               

Afgeneem hieronder op 27 Augustus 2020 op die gronde van Sandy Point Canning is die antieke skeepsanker van naderby. Die feit dat 'n antieke anker aan wal gebring was, is heeltemal wettig aangesien dit na die oppervlakte gebring is tydens wettige visvangpraktyke in 'n "oop area". Die fonds is onder aandag gebring van die S.A. Visserye Museum op Laaiplek, vanwaar 'n skeepsargeloog verbonde aan die Iziko museum in Kaapstad verwittig is, wat op hul beurt die anker sal ontleed vir historiese rekordhouding sowel as advies sal verskaf aangaande die bewaring van hierdie anker.

             "RIVIERGANS" SINK LANGS DIE OOSKAAI

Afgeneem hieronder op 19 Augustus 2020 langs die Ooskaai in die Kaapse Dokke lÍ die gesinkte romp van die "Riviergans" wat tans in sloping is. Die oorsaak vir die sinking is egter onbekend, maar gegewe die foto hieronder wat op 13 Augustus geneem was, moet mens erken dat die skuit se "free board" limiete tot op die uiterste beproef was...

                       

Afgeneem hieronder op 13 Augustus 2020 is al wat van die "Riviergans" se romp oorgebly het, wat tans gesink langs die kaai lÍ...Dit gaan so effens van 'n kopseer veroorsaak om hierdie ribbes weer vlot te maak.

               

              DIE SALDANHABAAI CHUKKIE-KLUB
                       VERGADER BY YACHTPORT

"NANJA"
       


Afgeneem hieronder op 14 Augustus 2020 by Yachtport is die "Lappop" in die voorgrond met "Flying Scott" wat in die agtergrond lÍ.

       
En so het die "Chukkie-klub" onlangs weer gegroei met die toevoeging van die blou-en-geel chukkie afkomstig van Velddrif. Nee wat, gee maar kans, Saldanhabaai gaan een van die dae lyk soos Lambertsbaai se hawe destyds gelyk het...
  
   
           "RENJA" WORD TER WATER GELAAT

Afgeneem hieronder op 14 Augustus 2020 by Yachtport in  Saldanhabaai is 'n seleksie van fotos aangaande die ter water lating van die "Renja". Vir meer aksie, sien ook die video op die Hoofblad genaamd "Renja ter water lating - 14 Augustus 2020.


       

     NUWELAND? AIKONA, DIS YACHTPORT HIERDIE!

Afgeneem hieronder op 14 Augustus 2020 staan die motors geparkeer soos by 'n Curriebeker finaal op Nuweland vanwaar mense van heinde en verre gekom het om die ter water lating van Suid-Afrika se eerste staalskuit in twee dekades te kom bywoon het.

       


Afgeneem hieronder is feitlik al wat verkeerd geloop het ter voorbereiding vir die ter water lating...een van die wielhuisvensters het slegs minute voordat die skuit op die skeepshyser gelig sou word, besluit om die gees te gee, en om een of ander onverklaarbare rede uitmekaar gebars...

       

Afgeneem hieronder is Onwa navigasietoerusting te sien wat intussen tyd bo-op die wielhuis gemonteer was, sedert die skuit op 5 Augustus 2020 vanaf Yzerfontein vervoer was.

       

       

       

       

Afgeneem hieronder is die span van Yachtport besig om die belde onderdeur die "Renja" se kiel te trek.

       

       'n MAN GEKLEE MET 'N HARDEHOED EN GROEN  
        OORPAK MAAK SY VERSKYNING OP DIE KAAI...

       


         HY IS GEKAMOFLEER MET 'n MASKER, EN HY
                      HET 'n KAMERA  BYDERHAND!


                  
   
     Moenie met hom geselsies aanknoop oor dekvis nie,
                             dit word ten sterkste teŽ gestaan...

Afgeneem hieronder word die belde styf getrek ten einde "Renja" vanaf haar bed te lig.

        

        

        

Afgeneem hieronder word anti-fouling vir oulaas toegevoeg waar die bed se stutte teen die romp gedruk het.

        

                   

          

Afgeneem hieronder is die lus alreeds in plek vanwaar dit hang aan die skuit se boeg vir die breek van die sjampanjebottel - 'n tradisionele ter water latings tradisie wat mens feitlik nie meer aantref in Suid-Afrika nie.

                   

        

        

           DIE SJAMPANJE BOTTEL WORD GEBREEK!

     

     

     

        

Afgeneem hieronder maak "Renja" vir die eerste keer kennis met seewater.

        

Afgeneem hieronder is dit skop, stern, skuim, rook en borrels namate die stuurkontroles nagegaan word.

        

                                     DAAR GAAN SY!

Afgeneem hieronder op 14 Augustus 2020 vertoon die rooi sirkel
die nuutste toevoegging op "Silver Challenger", naamlik 'n Suid-Afrikaanse vlag. Onlangs is soortgelyke Suid-Afrikaanse vlae toegevoeg op elk van Terrasan Pelagies se skuite. 


        
Trawler Heritage wonder of die vertoning van die Suid-Afrikaanse vlag mens kan help om meer vis te kan vang? Of wie weet, patriotisme help dalk om 'n groter kwota te kan bekom? Ek sal daai antwoord moet probeer uitvind. In daai geval gaan ons almal ons vlaggies begin waai, onderstebo soos party manne s'n of te nie...

               
NEE SUID-AFRIKA, NEE, NEE, NEE!

Afgeneem hieronder op 14 Augustus 2020 is hoe die sekuriteitshuisie by die ingang van Saldanhabaai hawe tans daarna uitsien nadat vandale die diefwerings, en vensterrame uit die mure geruk het. Iewerste moet hierdie nonsens in ons hawens begin einde kry!

Afgeneem hieronder op 13 Augustus 2020 in die Kaapse Dokke is die "Riviergans" se romp tot so 'n mate afgebreek dat die skuit se vorm mens eerder aan die van 'n antieke Romeinse oorlogskip laat herhinder.

        

Afgeneem hieronder het die "Riviergans" se ratkas nog behoue gebly, waarskynlik die enigste voorwerp op die skuit behalwe vir die skroef en skroef-as wat nog iets van waarde kan beteken.

Afgeneem hieronder op 16 Julie 2020 is tans die stand van sake aangaande die breekwaterstrukture van die Gansbaai ouhawe wat onlangs weer die elemente moes trotseer in 'n verwoestende winterstorm. Voorheen berig op 13 Oktober 2019, het Trawler Heritage uitgewys hoe die Gansbaai se ou-langmuur besig is om weg te sak in die see. Hierdie breekwater het die onlangse storm oorleef maar, in die fotos hieronder kan daar gesien word dat die voorste punt van die ou-kortmuur los gebreek van die res van die breekwater. Hiermee waarsku Trawler Heritage weereens vir Departement Publieke werke om aandag aan die situasie te skenk.

                                FOR "CONQUISTADOR"

Pictured below on 4 June 2020 are several photos taken during the loading, transport and off-loading of a new wheelhouse and coaming for the Cape Town based tuna pole "Conquistador". The loading took place at Saldanha Bay and had to transported to the East Quay in the Cape Docks, of which the entire operation was performed by Ritco Marine. The wheelhouse which originated from the "Christie Sue" was stored at Saldanha Bay after the vessel was scrapped during November 2019.

However, in the skillful hands of the Ritco Marine technicians, it is very likely that we will see the "Southern Belle" back in action at sea, very soon.

              

        NUWE WIELHUIS OPPAD VIR "CONQUISTADOR"

Afgeneem hieronder op 29 Mei 2020 langs die Oos-kaai in die Kaapse Dokke was die laaste keer ooit dat ons die "Conquistador" met 'n enkelvlak wielhuis sal sien. Ten tyde dat die foto geneem was, was alle bruikbare artikels alreeds vanuit en vanaf die wielhuis verwyder. Die "Conquistador" sal binnekort toegerus word met die glasvesel wielhuis van die "Christie Sue" wat gedurende November 2019 in Saldanhabaai gesloop was.

Ja-nee wragtag! Kyk, vandag lÍ die vis so diep dat mens 'n duikboot nodig het om by dit te kan uitkom. Afgeneem hieronder op 27 Mei 2020 is hierdie duikboot gewaar in St.Helenabaai ten spyte van die feit dat 40 pelagiese skuite tesame met ongeveer 100 snoekskuite ook op daardie stadium werksaam was in die baai. Ook geen wonder die vlootmanne het nie kans gesien om te duik in daai besige waters nie!

Afgeneem hieronder op 27 Mei 2020 vaar die "Adenia" die Bergrivier binne wat ook tot dusver 'n baie suksesvolle seisoen beleef, met 'n erg afgedopte romp wat as bewyse daarvan dien.
           
  

     "EXCALIBUR" OP DIE SLIP BY KEYWAY SHIPWRIGHT

Afgeneem hieronder op 27 Mei 2020 op Laaiplek by Keyway Shipwright is die "Excalibur" tans op die slip vir vars kalfaat en 'n skoon skrop van die laer romp. Alhoewel die skuit onaktief in Laaiplek verkeer, word daar egter deurgaans instandhoudingswerk op die romp verrig. Gegewe haar huidige kondisie
gaan dit net soos in die geval van die "Boetie Akie", 'n man op 'n perd kos om die situasie om te keer, en definitief nie 'n broodmuis in die galley nie...

       

Maar vir Trawler Heritage sal sy altyd die "Noordzee" bly tot in lengte van dae. Daardie "z"-klank wat net so elegant val op die oor soos die "z" in "Mizpah".

                                             "INTINI"
        

                                    "HIGHLAND QUEEN"
        

Pictured below on 25 May 2020 is the rather unusual sight to see the "Emerald" resting on anchor inside the bay for several days...we suspect that perhaps their was an "case" onboard...

                     

 
"SOUTHERN BELLE" SE GROOTMASJIEN GEE DIE GEES

Afgeneem hieronder op 25 Mei 2020 op die Saldanhabaai skeepshelling staan die "Southern Belle" enjin-loos nadat haar Caterpillar grootmasjien opgepak het einde April-maand en die skuit gestrand gelÍ het in Saldanhabaai. Dit ten spyte van die feit dat die res van die pelagiese vloot gebaljaar het met uitstekende Ansjovis vangste die afgelope paar weke.

                  

                 
DIE "GANSE" SIT HUL STORMTOUE UIT

Afgeneem hieronder op 24 Mei 2020 op Gansbaai het die hele vloot addisionele toue uitgegooi ter voorbereiding van die eerste winterstorm, en soos wat die weervoorspelling daarna uitsien gaan dit sommer met die intrapslag 'n groot storm wees.

                  

              
"PROJEK-RENJA" - DIE "START-UP"

Afgeneem hieronder op 22 Mei 2020 op Yzerfontein is nog 'n unieke mylpaal bereik aangaande die voltooing van die "Renja". Met die voltooing van die elektriese bedrading in die enjinkamer sowel as hidrouliese lyne het die groot oomblik aangebreek om die Cummins grootmasjien aan te skakel vir 'n proeflopie.

        

      

Afgeneem hieronder loop daar aanvanklik eers 'n straaltjie water uit die wet-exhaust, voordat die trottle oopgedraai word en 'n stroom water ter voorskyn kom.

Afgeneem hieronder op 9 Mei 2020 langs die Dienskaai in Houtbaai lÍ die "Asterix" hoog en droog op die klippe uitgetrek ten einde voorsorg te kon tref dat die skuit nie langs die kaai moes sink nie. Hierdie einste skuit is gedurende 2005 deur oom Jan Lottering op Gansbaai plank-vir-plank herbou, en kon daarin slaag om sonder enige instandhoudingswerk op eie houtjie te kon oorleef vir 15 jaar lank - 'n ware indikasie van die gehalte werk wat oom Jan destyds gelewer het aan skuiteienaars.


        

                        DIS VOLMAAN OP VELDDRIF

En daardie insident op Vondeling Eiland som Trawler Heritage se filosofie mooi op naamlik: Neem baie fotos van die skuite, vandag sien jy hulle, mŰre sink hulle, en dan het niemand fotos van hulle nie - selfs nie eers Saldanhabaai se hawemeester nie...of waarvan praat ek dan nou?

                          "WILDEKUS"
OP DIE SLIP

NET WERK OP LAAIPLEK

Afgeneem hieronder op 21 April 2020 op Laaiplek is die bemanning sowel as 'n span netwerkers besig met herstelwerk aan die "Atlantic Leader" se kleinmasnet.

         
Mense mag dalk sÍ ons"cheat" tydens hierdie periode van inperking, maar as die pelagiese vissermanne nie werk nie, gaan die nasie sterf van die hongerte, want sonder vismeel is daar nie voldoende kos vir die pluimvee en suiwelboere op ons plase nie...

O'WEE, O'WEE, DAAR'S NOU 'n
                      ROOILIG OP STARBOARD!


Gedurende 2019 het Trawler Heritage 'n skuit opgemerk waar die groen starboard navigasielig op port side vertoon word - dis seker maar net 'n klein foutjie, of so het ons gedink?...

Afgeneem hieronder is egter nou nog 'n geval waar 'n skuit se rooi navigasielig op starboard vertoon word. Kyk mense, dis nou tyd om wakker te skrik, hierdie tipe van foute is onaanvaarbaar, ook geen wonder Trawler Heritage verwys eerder na SaamSlaap eerder as SAMSA, wie verantwoordelik is om seker te maak dat die basiese beginsels van seemanskap toegepas word. Tegnies gesproke is dit seker wel moontlik om 'n rooilig op starboard te kan hÍ - mits jy natuurlik orals "stern" waar jy wil wees...

DIE LAASTE SIEN VAN "ALASKA"

Afgeneem hieronder op 27 Februarie 2020 op die Ooskaai is die laaste oorblyfsels van die "Alaska" naamlik die agterstewe en skroef-as, nadat die skuit onlangs bo-op die kaai gesloop is.

          

          

                 BUSY SCENES AT CAPE SYNCROLIFT

Pictured below on 27 February 2020 at the Cape Syncrolift three fishing vessels were present namely "Admiraal De Ruiter", "Cape Frio" and "African Queen".


                              
"ADMIRAAL DE RUITER"
          

                                      
"CAPE FRIO"
          

                                  
"AFRICAN QUEEN"
          
Will this be the last time ever that we see the "African Queen" with an black hull colour scheme? Trawler Heritage recons it may very well be the case...

      
FISHING FLEET RESTING ALONGSIDE COLLIER JETTY

Pictured below on 27 February 2020 several fishing vessels were berthed alongside the Collier Jetty. Amongst the fleet home were "Tina", "Abe Shapiro", "Staalkop" and "Nicolette" to mention just a few.

LATEST PROGRESS ON "ADELETTE" REBUILT


Pictured below on 27 February 2020 alongside the Collier Jetty are the latest progress regarding the re-built of the "Adelette. Seen below are new hand rails fitted on top of the shelterdeck and whaleback.


          

       
      FISHING FLEET RESTING IN ALFRED BASIN

Pictured below on 27 February 2020 several fishing vessels were berthed alongside the East Quay. Amongst the fleet home were "Kariba", "Wilmag", "Comet", "Armando", "Herman S" and "Allison" to mention just a few.  


                                         
"SAILFISH"

Pictured below on 27 February 2020 the red circle indicates that in the absence of an rear bollard, a cleat mounted to the wheelhouse coaming of the "Herman S", is being used to secure the vessel alongside the jetty.

          

Pictured below on 27 February 2020 the red circle indicates an sprinkler system hanging from the bow of the "Herman S" in order to moisten the bow planks.

          

                                       
"HERMAN S"
          

Pictured below on 27 February 2020 on the East Quay the very neat and well maintained crayfish vessels "Newlands" and "Impala" is seen here surrounded by crayfish traps, although neither vessel participated in the 2019/2020 crayfish season yet. 

          

Pictured below on 27 February 2020 alongside the West Quay is the former Dutch Beamer "Windward", who was also recently spotted on the Cape syncrolift.

          

Pictured below on 27 February 2020 the hake stern trawler "Avro Warrior" is seen here docked inside the Robinson dry-dock for general maintenance and a fresh layer of paint.

          

    
         NEW COLOUR SCHEME FOR "LEPANTO"

Pictured below on 27 February 2020 alongside South Arm the hake side trawler "Lepanto" is seen here featuring a new blue hull colour scheme. Previously the "Lepanto" featured a black hull colour scheme.


                            
"NEW" COLOUR SCHEME
          

                           
"OLD" COLOUR SCHEME
          
Blou, blou, blou. Siende dat Irvin & Johnson sowel as Oceana se vloot uit slegs blou rompe bestaan, en nou ook skynbaar die voormalige Viking Fishing vloot, gaan dinge langs South Arm in die nabye toekoms darem baie "boring" daarna uitsien as almal net blou romp skuite het. Wat het geword van kreatiwiteit?

      
       LATEST STERN TRAWLER MOVEMENTS

Pictured below on 27 February 2020 several hake stern trawlers were present in the Victoria Basin. Amongst the fleet home were "Realeka", "Armana", "Laverne", "Ferox" and "Foxglove" to mention just a few.

"SILVERFERN" MAAK 'n REGSTELLING...MET VETKRYT

Die Trawler Heritage crew sal nog die foto hieronder onthou wat geplaas was op 1 Junie 2019 van die kreefskuit "Silverfern" wat haar visvangkode "K" agterste voor-om (onderste bo) vertoon het op die whaleback. Wel, goeie nuus is dat daar wel intussen 'n regstelling plaasgevind het...


          

Afgeneem hieronder op 27 Februarie 2020 op die Quay Four skeepshelling is hierdie "K" opgemerk wat sommer met 'n stuk vetkryt op die whaleback geskryf is...Miskien nie so elegant nie, maar definitef 'n 180-grade verbetering!

          

                         
           "SILVERFERN"
          

       
      KOLGANSE SOEK SITE OP "BERGGANS"

Afgeneem hieronder op 26 Februarie 2020 in Gansbaai is hierdie twee kolganse opgemerk op die "Berggans" se bulwarks vanwaar hulle die skuit van naderby beloer...

                   
           

               PELAGIESE SKUITE IN HOUTBAAI

Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 in Houtbaai is 'n
seleksie van pelagiese skuite in Houtbaai wat weens stormsterk wind nie see toe kon gaan nie. Skuite teenwoordig was "Elomi", "South West Falcon", "Towerkop", "Noordeveld", "Nossob",
"Oceana Viking", "Star Crest", "Umadala" en "Antonie W II".
   

                                       
"NOSSOB"
        

Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 in Houtbaai die helfte van "Ocean Blue" se kragblok verwyder gewees om watter rede(s) ookal.

        

Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 in Houtbaai toon die rooi sirkel aan dat 'n gedeelte van die handreŽling op die balkon van die "Ocean Blue" ook voete gekry het...seker maar scrap yard toe?

BOEK MAAR SOLANK DIE SANDBLASTERS...


Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 in Houtbaai pryk die "Noordeveld" met 'n afgedopte romp na slegs twee trippe tussen Laaiplek en Kaappunt. Boek maar solank die sandblasters vir die afseisoen, die skuit hou duidelik nie van haar nuwe grys kleurskema nie...


        

Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 word die Yskaai omring deur pelagiese skuite waaronder "South West Falcon", "Towerkop", "Emerald Isle", "Star Crest" en "Oceana Viking".

        

                                    
"ANTONIE W II"
        

    
                           "ELOMI" DRYF NOG


Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 in Houtbaai dryf die "Elomi" nog hoog en droog nadat die skuit twee dae van tevore erg water begin inneem het en die N.S.R.I. moes ontbied het om hul te hulp te snel buitekant Slangkop. Benoude oomblikke het gevolg, maar "Elomi" het dit veilig gemaak tot in Houtbaai onder
begeleiding van 'n N.S.R.I. vaartuig.


        

                     
"EDELWEISS" BYT NOG VAS...


Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 in Houtbaai is die onaktiewe skuit "Edelweiss" waarvan die algehele kondisie daagliks versleg. Die vraag is net, hoe lank gaan sy nog so kan uithou?


                    

 
"AFRICA UNITY"...HIER KOM NOG GROTER MOEILIKHEID!


Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 in Houtbaai is hoe die houtwerke op die agterstewe van die "Africa Unity" tans daarna uitsien met nate wat net wyer en wyer begin ooptrek.


        

    "SPARTICUS" CATCHING TUNA OUT OF HOUT BAY

Pictured below on 23 February 2020 at Hout Bay is the Mossel Bay based purse seiner "Sparticus" now featuring new tuna pole and live bait fishing codes on her whaleback as the vessel is now also being utilized as a tuna pole vessel in the absence of pilchards. However, the "Sparticus" has since returned to Mossel Bay.


        

                                     "SPARTICUS"
        

Pictured below on 23 February 2020 at Hout Bay is the new main mast of the "Balaguru" still without any navigational lights as all the navigational lights are still mounted to the mizzen mast on the wheelhouse roof.

              NEW SI-TEX RADAR FOR "KINGFISHER"


Pictured below on 23 February 2020 at Hout Bay is a new Si-Tex radar mounted onto the front mast of the "Kingfisher". To the best of Trawler Heritage knowledge, this is the only Si-Tex radar unit on an South African fishing vessel.


        

                           
THE "NEW" "KINGFISHER"


Pictured below on 23 February 2020 at Hout Bay is the tuna pole vessel "Kingfisher" after the vessel was re-built recently. Besides various new attributes the vessel now has a grey hull colour scheme from it's previous white hull colour scheme.

"HANGBERG" WORD HERBOU AS B&B


Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 in Houtbaai is die onaktiewe tunapaal skuit "Hangberg" waarmee daar nou beoog word om die skuit te omskep in 'n B&B fasiliteit....

        
Trawler Heritage het egter sy bedenkinge oor hierdie beoogde projek. In die onlangse verlede het talle entrepreneurs dieselfde probeer vermag, maar geeneen het enige sukses daarmee behaal om uitgediende houtskuite in B&B fasiliteite te omskep nie, waaronder "Boggenfels", "Groenveld II", "Oceana Pluto" en "Drakenskop". En nou dat almal se geheues so bietjie verfris is, is daar nog enige persoon wat wil stry met Trawler Heritage?

Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 in Houtbaai is nog 'n onaktiewe skuit waarmee daar dringend 'n plan mee gemaak sal moet word, voordat nog 'n gedeelte van die kaai besmet gaan wees met 'n gesinkte skuit.

        

                  
KREEFSKUITE SKUIL IN HOUTBAAI

Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 was drie kreefskuite teenwoordig wat tot onlangs toe nog in die Dasseneiland omgewing werksaam was naamlik "Ang-Jerry", "Ivy Doreen" en "Sud West", asook 'n onaktiewe kreefskuit "Plettenberg".

Met daai gevaarte sal dit maar raadsaam wees om net binne-in
die hawe rond te ry, daar buitekant gaan jy net probleme optel...


                      
JETTY NO.3 FULLY OCCUPIED


Pictured below on 23 February 2020 several tuna pole and hake lonline vessels were present alongside Jetty No.3 at Hout Bay harbour.

  EN NOU, GAAN JY DIE HAWE DIEPER MAAK?

Oor die jare heen het Trawler Heritage al baie goedters in die see sien beland wat nie eintlik daarso hoort nie waaronder Tata bakkies, kreefbakkies, verfbakkies, kosbakkies, sigaretpakkies en selfs eenkeer het die skuit se side-thruster ook afgedonner (verskoon die wielhuis-taal, maar daai thruster het nie net per ongeluk daar afgeval nie.)

Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 het hierdie laaigraaf in Houtbaai hawe beland en nee mense, hy het nie van die kaai afgery nie, hy het netso duskant S.A. Sea Products se aflaaipompe water gevat. Die operateur het letterlik die teerpad byster geraak, bo-oor die sypaadjie, af teen die klippe, die water in gery. Nou toe, hy is mos nou mooi skoon gewas, julle kan hom nou maar weer kom uithaal...

                     


Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 word die laaigraaf met behulp van 'n mobiele hyskraan uit die water gelig.  

                     

           
      
Kyk my baas, ek gee hom weer mooi skoon terug vir jou...

         
SUID-AFRIKA, SO GAAN ONS NÍRENS KOM NIE!

Gedurende Desember 2019 het Trawler Heritage berig gedoen rakende verbeteringe aan infrastruktuur in die Houtbaai hawegebied. Twee maande later en tekens van agteruitgang is alreeds te bespeur...Aangetoon met die rooi sirkel hieronder is hoe sake tans lyk by die sekuriteitshokkie by die hawe se ingang nadat die nuwe aluminium vensterrame oopgebuig is en die glas terselfde tyd verwyder is.

          
Om diefstal te pleeg en dan die verskoning te gebruik dat "hulle" niks het nie is onsin. Daar is baie van ons daarbuite wat ook nie 'n huis het nie, selfs nie 'n vrou of kinders het nie, maar ons steel nie. Ons gaan elke dag uit en probeer 'n verskil maak in ons samelewing, maar steel gaan ons nie steel nie, al word daar van ons gesteel.

                    
HOUTBAAI HAWEMUUR STORT INEEN

Nee mense, dis nie Jerigo nie, dis Houtbaai! Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 is 'n gedeelte van die nuut opgerigte Houtbaai hawemuur wat ineengestort het om watter rede(s) ookal. Of hierdie infrakstruktuur wel herstel gaan word, en of die boukontrakteur verantwoordelik daarvoor gehou gaan word, kan mens maar
net oor spekuleer...

EK HET TOETERS EN 'n KLOK OP MY WATERSKOETER...


Afgeneem hieronder op 23 Februarie 2020 in Saldanhabaai spog "Atlantic Enterprise" met toeters en 'n klok op die wielhuis soos aangetoon met die rooi sirkels.

         
Nou gaan ons eers lekker lawaai maak in die middel van die
nag vir die mense daar van Grotto...gedink ons het van julle
klagtes vergeet ne?

             "BERGGANS" KOM GELAAI HUIS TOE 

Afgeneem hieronder op 20 Februarie 2020 vaar "Berggans" Gansbaai ouhawe binne vir haar aflaaibeurt. Mooi so "Ganse"!

          

                   'n "GANS" VAN ANDERSTE VERE... 

Afgeneem hieronder op 18 Februarie 2020 op Gansbaai nader die "Wafra" die aflaaikaai. Nou die Noordkapper wat julle daarso sien op die romp is nie geskilder op die romp nie. O'nee, dis 'n staalplaat wat aan die romp gemonteer is om die voorvlerk se skaaf teen te werk. Hoe's daai vir kreatiwiteit!

        

        
"Wafra"? Trawler Heritage se Grieks mag dalk grens aan pateties, maar vermoed dat die betekenis van "Wafra" in Grieks iets beteken soos "Riviergans"....of so dink ek!

          
"EMERALD" AND "PAKAMANI" ON THE SLIP

Pictured below on 16 February 2020 the hake longliner "Emerald" is seen here standing on the Saldanha Bay slipway for general maintenance and a fresh layer of paint.

         

Indicated by the red circle are some new braces fitted to the radar stand in order to improve it's stability.


         
 Is daardie Koden scanner so bietjie te swaar vir daai staander?...

Pictured below on 16 February 2020 the hake longliner "Pakamani" is seen here on the Saldanha Bay slipway for general maintenance and a fresh layer of paint.

         

Indicated by the red circle, new horizontal waterline markings have been welded onto the starboard bow of the "Pakamani".

         

   
CRAYFISH VESSELS ALONGSIDE PRESIDENTS JETTY

Afgeneem hieronder op 16 Februarie 2020 op Saldanhabaai is die skoongeverfde Suidkus kreefvanger "Ebhayi".

         

Afgeneem hieronder staan daar metaalraam fuike (soos gebruik deur Weskus kreefskuite) gestapel op die agterdek van die "Ebhayi". Tradisioneel word plastiekfuike gebruik deur Suidkus kreefskuite.

         

                       
TRAWLKAMPIOEN TROFEE?

Afgeneem hieronder is 'n trofee te siene deur die wielhuisvenster
van die "Ebhayi".

         

Afgeneem hieronder is die boegembleem van die "Ebhayi" ook weer netjies geverf, alhoewel dit geen betekenis meer het nie, en immers nog terugdateer na die "Ebhayi" se oorspronklike eienaar terug in tyd toe sy werksaam was vanuit Nederland.

         

             
          ROEPLETTER DUBBELVISIE...

Aangetoon met die rooi sirkels word die skuit se roepletters twee keer vertoon op die wielhuis...siende dat die skuit nou vir weke op die Saldanha skeepshelling gestaan het, sou mens veronderstel dat so 'n verskynsel uitgeklaar sou word...maar toe nie!

         

Benewens twee radars is daar ook agt GPS antennas te siene op die "Ebhayi" wielhuis se dak...is julle so bietjie skrikkerig vir die mis?


                 

       PROPELLER DRAAI OP IN WOODSTOCK BRUG...

Nou mense, dis wyd bekend dat propellers so van tyd tot tyd klippe en pale tref, en soms opdraai in toue en nette - maar, in hierdie geval 'n oorhoofse brug. Afgeneem hieronder op 15 Februarie 2020 op 'n snikhete Saterdag agtermiddag, sit hierdie spannetjie en blaas hul lorrie se bande af om hulself te bevry nadat hul "vrag" opgedraai het op die N1 nasionale pad onder die Woodstock brug, oppad na hul werkswinkel in Paardeneiland.

     

Pictured below on 15 February 2020 at the Granger Bay slipway facility is the neatly painted hull of the hake longliner "Captain De Sousa" from Hout Bay.

          

       
RITCO MARINE TO REFURBISH CUMMINS ENGINE


Pictured below on 15 February 2020 the former Cummins main engine of the "Atlantic Ocean" was handed over to Ritco Marine for some extensive refurbishment to be performed by their skillful hands, before this engine will once again return to the sea. Trawler Heritage will keep the crew informed regarding the progress made on this project in the coming weeks. 


          

      BUSY SCENES AT SALDANHA BAY SLIPWAY

        CRAYFISH FLEET RESTING AT SALDANHA BAY
  

Pictured below on 9 February 2020 several crayfish vessels fleet were present alongside the Presidents Jetty. Amongst the fleet home were "Ivy Doreen", "Potberg", "Patrysberg", "Silver Leader", "Rooigoud" and "Paulsberg" to mention just a few.

Pictured below on 9 February 2020 from left to right is "Ivy Doreen", "Silver Leader"  and "Rooigoud".

         

Pictured below on 9 February 2020 the red circle indicates that even the gas bottle on-top of the wheelhouse roof of the "Ivy Doreen" has a green colour scheme...perhaps to match the green hull colour scheme?

         


         

Pictured below on 9 February 2020 from left to right is "Potberg", "Patrysberg"  and "Paulsberg".

         
Net om te bewys die totale chaos waarin die kreefbedryf homself tans in bevind is die feit dat die Oceana Groep 30 jaar gelede nog gespog het met meer as 100 kreefskuite gestasioneer al langs die Weskus vanaf Luderitz tot by Houtbaai. Gedurende die 2019/2020 kreefseisoen het die Oceana Groep slegs 5 aktiewe kreefskuite oor...dit laat mens nogal dink ne! 

   
VISRUIM HERSTELWERK VIR "ATLANTIC ENTERPRISE"

Afgeneem hieronder op 9 Februarie 2020 op Saldanhabaai is daar nog volstoom besig gewees met die installering van nuwe staal skotte in die visruime van die "Atlantic Enterprise".

verbeter het.

ONS GROET VIR "ALASKA" 

2020 blyk toe ook om nie 'n goeie jaar vir houtskuite te wees nie - hierso word die tweede houtskuit vir die jaar tot dusver gesloop. Afgeneem hieronder op 6 Februarie 2020 lÍ die laaste oorblyfsels van die "Alaska" op die Ooskaai in die Kaapse Dokke nadat die skuit se romp met 'n mobiele hyskraan uit die water gelig is tot op die kaai vanwaar dit nou gesloop gaan word.

         
En so groet ons nog 'n pelagiese stryd-os van weleer. Die enigste herhinnering aangaande hierdie skuit is Alaska Straat geleŽ in die Meersig woonbuurt in Walvisbaai, wat na hierdie einste skuit vernoem was.

                 "VIKING RUBY" TO BE RENAMED?

Pictured below on 6 February 2020 on the Cape Syncrolift the red circle indicates that the name letters on the stern of the "Viking Ruby" had been removed, presumably to make place for a new name? Time will tell.
