Ever notice how some boats float better at sunrise?
 
Here's an example from 2 days ago. Maybe it's the water in our favorite anchorage, but the neighboring boats just seemed to float better. It's not the boat itself, because nearly any sailboat will float in the same way in this very special place.

Don't take my word for it, see for yourself. (tongue firmly in cheek)

Anyone else see something similar at their anchorage?

Regards,
Brad

nice shoot but turn it 180 to see the true photo. Still nice

I think there was a scene like that in the most recent pirates movie... Cool shot

It has to do with water being cooler in the AM, so it is denser, and able to support the boat better! hence said boat floats higher!

this case, it also helps if the tide is out............or on the hard or what the heck am I typing?!?!?!?!?

Cool shot none the less!
