The 'keeler' heeling over like that has me puzzled - was he aground and then a %@%? stinkboater decided to go past at a great rate of knots to have a quick look ???

No, this is a common occurance in the Swansea Channel, the 40+ footers have to wait til high tide and do a runner to try and get through the shallowest parts in order to get to the ocean races held regularly off the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie coastline. Invariably they get stuck and have to be hauled through by a chase boat ( or two ). We could laugh with our 300ml draft, but...ok let's laugh!
