They knew I was in the process of Locking out, so I hope they would know there is a level of restriction.
Admittedly the outer harbour only consists of about 100-200 metres and purely from a common sense point of view, gunning it out, straight into an on coming vessel would be stupid, so driving at a speed that met the conditions and location, but making the best possible speed seemed appropriate.
Additionally when providing safety cover on the Thames the PLA specify that any speed limits can only be exceeded in a rescue situation where the speed is appropriate to the situation and safe.
