Or it could be a flat bilged long keeler, I know of one that sits on the hard like a duck.

As at 16:15 today. Now has something yellow that I couldn't make out attached to the mast. Maybe a lifejacket?

Here's a picture from a little while before it happened: imgur.com/fayE1ox

Pretty sure it's the schooner out on the edge of the field.

The mud must be deep and holding it upright. How it didn't lean over on its side is a mystery.
