we can see the water on the livecam !

Fear not giloine the hall is designed that way, it stops the stern digging too deep when released, she begins to float earlier in the launch process.

Well spotted.

Perhaps he's in his bath with one of those plastic ferries they sell in beach shops, trying to reenact the event. 😀 Ed.

Careful... I already have a wealth of greased slipway jokes.

I thought that too but keep playing with it. I think it's more to do with the volume logging on to watch.
