I didn't see the actual grounding of Jeri's vessel, so, can't really picture the rescue. But, Stan Rogers' song The Rocks Of Baccaloo came to mind. If someone wants to add to it, ok.

She was bound home in October,
From that folkie getaway
Trying to make the Jersey turnpike before dark,
But she tried to take a shortcut
And fetched up on a stump
Like that mountain in the east stopped Noah's Ark.

You should never leave the channel
If you havn't got the charts
There are hazards all around that you can't see
You should always take a pilot to steer you safely through
Or you'll end up barking up the wrong tree.
