She looks like shes going flat out just carefully pottering up the river, although with an 8 foot draft I think I'd be proceeding rather cautiously.

Aeolus is an extreme plank on edge gaff topsail cutter similar in concept to the designs of GL Watson at the beginning of the 20th century, narrow beam, deep draft with slack bilges, long keel, internal lead ballast  and an excessive sail plan.
