I know boats!

I was doing an image search day or two ago and dug up this classic from the tropical paradise of Tahiti , several years ago. It was one of those beautiful sunny afternoons with just about no wind, so the water was really glassy with loads of perfect waves and they had grown in size by a few extra few feet, as I’ve noticed it tends to do this just after midday. The boat in this mage was sitting much further up the reef and quite obviously too close to the impact zone. It’s a risk that every boat captain wears. The chance of either a rogue wave catching you off guard like in this image or the more likely scenario of a failed engine due to fouling of the fuel filter or something similar. I’ve seen both situations happen out there and rarely is it pretty, but it sure can be spectacular, as shown here in this dramatic image.
