I enjoyed seeing this photo
It is NOT photoshopped.
I have seen the "backstory" photos of how this was made.
of the ship actually got out and stood on the bulb at the bow, for just a few moments. Photo
shots were taken, and then off he went.
It is a very good image concept
and very good execution of the idea.
But, my favorite of this type is the one showing Alex Thomson the "Riding the Keel" of the Hugo Boss race boat.
He has done this a few times, with the following article in 2012 (he also did it in 2009).

Trivia: Alex Thomson was the youngest sailor to win a "Round the World" race
when he was just 25 years old!
"And what exactly does it require other than one crazy guy in a suit?
A wind speed of 17 – 19 knots, waves between 50cm and 1.25 meters, a sailing speed of nine knots and a crew with some 45 years’ experience.
Once these conditions are met, the crew needs to angle the yacht at 70degrees to get a 45-60 second window where this real-life Bond can mount the keel from a jet-ski and adjust his bow-tie."
