'Adieu' and 'Scot Carrier' off Lower Hope Point
'Scot Carrier' had left Erith at 06:44 BST for Waterford, not one of Scotline's regular routes, according to their web site. 'Adieu' was at the start of the 2015 Thames Barge Match. It was just about to go about, it was surprising how close inshore it came. However, according to the marks on the bow, it was drawing less than three feet, presumably with leeboards up.
