So do I Phil ~ at a guess I would say it's the 'lines' ~ from that angle, you have the cabin lower than the bow ~ it looks clean, crisp and 'fast' as though you could picture her smashing through waves, under full sail, totally in control of the element it's in ~ well that's how it strikes me anyway... LOL
On the way home I was struck by the unusual look of the clouds over Totnes. Unfortunately I couldn't find anywhere to get a nice shot; there was always something in the way obscuring the whole thing. I thought no-one else had noticed but someone had and not only took this shot but also named the phenomenon: they are asperitas clouds.
From the river looking over the town that "roll" left of centre (what really caught my eye) was extending down over St Mary's church.
