Falmouth 5/7

Another shot from the inner harbour area at Falmouth where more of the Royal Navy vessel can be seen and the local RNLI lifeboat is moored up in the foreground.

That orange colour must be a welcome sight to beleaguered sailors, Brian...An interesting shot of the harbour.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure it must Frank. I suspect during the winter and the summer it is a busy harbour.
The color can't be missed! Nice how you've lined them up!
Brian Walbey: As Frank says a welcome sight to beleaguered sailors.
This boat can't be missed Brian! Great capture.
Brian Walbey: There's no way this colour could be missed in the open sea.
Gotta love the color of the lifeboat, Brian. smile
Brian Walbey: No doubt it can be seen from a long way away Ginnie.

Boats are a bit like dogs, they come in all shapes & sizes
Brian Walbey: Lifeboats certainly do, from the really large ones to the small inshore type.

This is a fabulous image, Brian.

I am getting a kick out of your wanderings.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ray.

Yes, the lifeboats are so necessary! I am supporting them in our country.
Brian Walbey: In this country sadly the lifeboats get very little, if any, support from the Government!!!!!
I like that you have joined a Boat Friday. This brightly coloured lifeboat is a great addition.
Brian Walbey: Not living near a harbour I don't get to see boats to take pictures of them very often, I was spoilt for choice at Falmouth. Shortly after I took this we met Mary and Nick and spent the afternoon with them, but more of that another time. Sorry mary, I should have said Janet and Nick, another senior moment!!!!!!!

From the first two Falmouth shots, I wouldn't have guessed there are such huge vessels about.
Brian Walbey: yes there is a large area set aside for deep sea vessels of all sorts, the smaller boats are, I guess, inshore ones or boats that sail up the River Fal estuary inland.
The lifeboats add a nice splash of colour don't they
Brian Walbey: They need to be visible from a long way off I presume hence this bold colour.
Falmouth is a lovely place for spotting sea going vessels Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chad, although in early April there wasn't a lot on the move.

I bet the lifeboat is welcome sight to many a sailor in trouble. Quite different to the RIBs in the Solent but then the seas are probably larger smile
Brian Walbey: No doubt about that Alan. Falmouth isn't sheltered by the Solent so I guess the seas would be a bit more lively.
A fine industrial shot, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, sadly there wasn't much going on.
it's good to see the rescue boat moored at the end of the pier to allow for a fast response Brian...
it's a busy image with all the masts and the cranes....petersmile
Brian Walbey: THis was an early April, dull Saturday morning Peter but I bet in the middle of summer it would have been buzzing with people and boats on the move.
