Haha maybe he's preparing for the tug boat that's going to have to push him off.
He must have hit that at high tide so he's probably going to need moon high tide to get off under his own power. but that is just impressive to look at.

They get some BIG tides in England - certainly more than the draft of that boat. Clevedon, on the Bristol channel, near where I lived years ago, has tides second only to Fundy - in the range of 30'

If you look closely, the keel bulb has wings, allowing the boat to stay upright.

Looks like a nice time to get out the scrubbie pad and go at the bottom.

Power boats are generally capable of "higher" performance than sailboats.

Re: A very public grounding

Believe it or not I was on a winged keel boat that this happened to in Long Island Sound (tidal range 8').
We grounded an O'Day 272 in a falling tide, could not motor off and just watched the water go out until there was not more water, just gently sloping sandy beach all around the boat.
The owner and another crew got off to walk on the beach. Someone took a picture of the boat standing up but I do not have a copy. For some reason I did not want to step from the boat onto the beach - superstition perhaps.
It was a little scary moving around the boat while it stood on it's keel. Every step made the hull reverberate.
Fortunately for us it was dark so nobody else took any incriminating photographs.
Within 6 hours the tide came back in and we floated off.
I couldn't make up stuff like this.
