First thought that crossed my mind too.
We're just selling the house to live the sea gypsy
life for a few years and we're copping the usual ignorant, landlubber family

From these pics it sure looks like on board a boat would have been frightening but surviving.
Could be a long wait for the next high tide for the guy on the bridge...
