I guess this is the difference between drying out and drying alongside.
Anyone who has dried out for a scrub will recognise how easily it is to get into this situation, our Endurance cutter Angelina always wanted to lead to starboard no matter how many jerry cans of water or other weights I hung on the port side.
There was a goodly crew of people on the quay helping out and presumably trying to take some of the weight off those timbers at the turn of the bilge, to prevent damage
