According to MarineTraffic.com Hawk is now heading in at about 6 knots, so at that speed is about an hour from reaching port.

As usual, marine radio traffic is available at http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/21054/web

The calm seas and closeness of air and sea surface temperatures made for some awesome long-range shots this time around.

E: Latest ETA (to the channel) 18:20, 15 minute from now.

From the images it looks like the post-landing fire damage is superficial at best.
