I also enjoy this painting by George Arnald, dealing with the same subject matter.

I discovered the Arnald piece as I was putting this piece together; it was a difficult decision.
The National Maritime Museum at Greenwich is a relatively unappreciated or visited jewel (compared to the Tate, Courtauld, British, V & A, etc.) I always chose the river trip out--adds immensely to the experience.
