Thanks Ben, A few minutes later the passengers seated just behind the bow moved due to spray coming over as we turned.

She is more seaworthy now than when previously on the Dart. The forward saloon was originally accessed from a companionway at the after end of the little well deck in the bows! While on the Medway in order to venture out into the 'partially smooth waters' of the Thames Estuary the MCA required this to be plated up and a new companionway installed giving access from the upper deck.
