Samuel Plimsoll's Nightmare.

A motorised river barge seen here chugging merrily along the River Maas waterway, severely overloaded and down by the head.
It only needs the wash of a passing ship, to easily swamp the hatches
As with all family owned concerns, its a wonder the family dog wasn't sighted or Granny down aft watering

Riverships are allowed to load even with the lowest point of the deck.
This is clearly beyond that! He wouldn't go much further if the River Police caught sight of him...
