Silvertown? Is that Silvertown on the Thames? I was on a coaster that brought gravel to Silvertown and it was on the weekend and the ship stuck in the mud when the tide went out and we were nearl sunk on Sunday morning as the tide came in and went up on to the well deck and almost into the hatch, anyway, some crane driver came and managed to drop the grab into our hold a few times before we popped up like a cork, it was touch and go for a while as there was only the captain and myself and another AB on board, the rest of the crew went home for the weekend.
