They weren't exactly in danger if they were "stranded" at North Fambridge were they? If they had hung on a while they would have floated down to Burnham. If they couldn't get themselves out of this they should never have been afloat in the first place.

I see what you are saying and agree...the only slight differance i feel is the time of day, almost Midnight...not much fun being stranded at that time in winter even on a small river.

Time doesn't mean much at sea, you sail by the tides not the sun, and small river is the operative word.
