A version of this song is on Brian Peters latest CD "Songs of Trial and Triumph". In the liner notes he attributes Cyril Poacher and the regulars at the "Blaxhall Ship"
With the "Hold the Wheel" part of the chorus being a local in-joke mocking a visiting yachtsman's mishearing of the words.
Brian includes the wheel part of the chorus in his version.
