The bow of that boat looks to me like it is setting very low in the water? It has no rise like a proper bow should have. If that is in normal trim, it sure would not be a safe open water boat!!! I wonder if they flooded the bilge to get it to fit under that bridge?
I witnessed a similar situation when I was living/working in Abu dhabi (1980 - 1986. I had a small dhow, so no problem with the bridge between Abu Dhabi Musaffa but a UAE Navy boat ahead of us had not considered the tides and his total above water height, and he got stuck. We waited for about 30 mins for the tide to go down .
