    Lightbulb Filey Coble... Help and info needed!

    I am the current owner of a Filey coble called Neptune 2 after a very long journey down the motorway! She is moored in Newquay, Cornwall and is a cracking fishing boat for myself and my family. Does anyone know anything about her? Where she was built, by who? Was she a salmon fishing boat? Were the huge, heavy oars used to row her out through the surf? Is there a Neptune 1 out there? Is the paint holding her together or shall I strip it all back... I am tempted! If anyone knows anything about Neptune 2 I would be really grateful. Thanks in advance.

    I know your coble but at the moment dont know her history. a guy called Dave Durward who is on here and trawler pictures is very knowledgable about the history of individual cobles. might be worth asking him.

    Neptune II, a Filey coble, is she a big wooden coble or a small GRP one? Has she a for'ard wheelhouse or is she open? Is she/or has been been painted red? With no photo to go on it is difficult. More info on her please.

    If you have a look on the photos in this website 'cobble and salmon net fishing boats' there is a photo. Blue band but used to be red at some point I think
