Thanks John

Yes,you are right she was making a lee, but it didn't appear to work out, she turned head up for the pilot eventually.

Regards
Ken

Presumably she was making a lee for the pilot to board Ken? Either that or she got very lost in the few moments between the sea pilot disembarking and the river pilot boarding :-D
Interesting catch.
Regards
John J.
