That really is a cool picture. I can only hope that it is not photoshopped.

Hi.

I enjoyed seeing this photo.

It is NOT photoshopped.

I have seen the "backstory" photos of how this was made.

The captain 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).

Real-life James Bond Alex Thomson performs 'The Keel Walk' aboard his Hugo Boss yacht | Daily Mail Online

Trivia: Alex Thomson was the youngest sailor to win a "Round the World" race when he was just 25 years old!

CLIP:

"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."

At first I thought the captain was on an SUP in front of the QM. Then I realized the QM is the SUP. Maybe Seaworthy Lass would like to trade up?
