Cycled down this morning ( after the rain overnight) and its another inch or two down in the water.

My feeling is its a boat from a swinging mooring in the harbour that's been bought up for its own good.

If it had been pulled off to one side of the river it could have grounded and emptied with the falling tide to be floated again ( with the bung in when the tide came back in...

Yes mine has a bung in the transom and one in the inner hull sump/well. The auto rule pump sits low in the well. Trouble being the auto pump has an internal float switch that often gets stuck with green slime as constantly wet - in the off position.

However with that amount of water it must have had the transom bung removed or worked loose. The water level would probably be above the battery in the consul by now and the fuse may have blown on the manual switch supply to the auto pump. So any kind sole that may have helped, would have perhaps turned on the manual switch and found it not working.

Looks like an earlier model which would have elephant trunks to drain the deck, later post 2006 had deck drain bungs as well as bilge pump.

If older then the bilge pump would need to be on and the deck drain holes open. If later model leave the deck drain holes sealed and open deck drain bungs as the water will drain all day no prob. This image suggest earlier model which needs pumping. Lets hope the bilge is dry or else that is one load of water to clear and will have water damage below deck to electrics etc

Surely that's too low just for water on the deck....

Broken free and damaged hull, possibly?

Edit: but then again there is a lot of water on the deck
