The Boat

This challenge closed over 7 years ago.

The Challenge

A challenge for those works depicting a boat to put it simply.
Photo can have more than one boat in the pic but it must have one prominent boat that overshadows all the rest.It cant just be a group of boats along a wharf or at anchor.
It can be brand new, it can be a rusting hulk embedded in the sand but it must be recognisable as a boat. It can be a dinghy or it can be the QE2, size doesnt always matter LOL.
I know its finicky but I have to draw the line somewhere, please no kayaks, canoes, surfboards, waveskis or paddleboards.
Please remember since this is the B&W photography group, colour photos will not be accepted.
