The narrator consistently pronounced "gunwale" as
/ˈɡʌnheɪl/ (gunhale) with an aspirated "h" (and no "w"). I'm only familiar with the pronunciation
/ˈɡʌnəl/ (gunnel) and that (or similar) is the only pronunciation given in a few dictionaries I consulted.
Is there a dialect of English (or regional accent) in which his pronunciation is common?
